Join an award-winning team

The Wendy House Day Nursery goes from strength to strength and as a result we are seeking motivated, hardworking people with a passion for child care. We offer competitive packages as well as excellent career progression opportunities.

There has never been a better time to join The Wendy House team. We have recently won two prestigious industry awards: the NDNA 'Nursery of the Year-Central' and Nursery World Business Development Initiative for our outstanding work in Foundation Unit.

With both settings rated Outstanding by Ofsted our credentials speak for themselves.

We are recruiting for Level 2 and 3 child care Practitioners, who will take an active role in daily life in the Nursery. We offer training and support, therefore we are seeking individuals with the personality and passion required to make Nursery a fun, safe and rewarding environment for young children.

Don’t just take it from us….

Of course, we would say all this, wouldn’t we?!
So…for the avoidance of doubt, let some of our fantastic practitioners tell you why they love working for The Wendy House.

Anna Jacques

“I started my career with The Wendy House as a practitioner and am now the room leader for our award winning Foundation Unit pre-school room! Career progression is taken seriously and all staff are encouraged to develop their skills. The nursery is big enough to promote from within to management positions, and with future expansion planned, there is no shortage of career opportunities.”

Sam Walker

“I have worked for The Wendy House since October 2014 and in 2016 I won the ‘employee of the year’ award. It was fantastic to be recognised for my hard work and achievements, which was made even better because the award was voted for by colleagues. There’s a real team spirit and a sense of shared success.”

Leah Murphy

“I love my job at The Wendy House! It’s satisfying nurturing the children and seeing them grow and develop. It’s a huge responsibility keeping children safe and secure while they’re away for their parents, but I truly believe that because the nursery sets such high standards there is no better place for them to be than here at The Wendy House.”

Sophie Hollis

“I am so proud to be part of a nursery that has been rated Outstanding by Ofsted. I work in Foundation Unit, where we have one intake of pre-school children per year, so we can really focus on individual children’s’ learning outcomes in maths and phonics. It’s great to see the children progress, and winning the Nursery World Award in 2016 for our work in Foundation Unit was the icing on the cake!!”

Kirsty Holder

“Life at The Wendy House is busy but fun! Because the nursery is so well-equipped we can be really creative with the curriculum and come up with some really special activities for the children – it’s true, we really do create a little bit of magic every day!”
