We are a newly renovated, nature-focused centre based in the heart of Epsom. We are firm believers that children will feel a sense of place, belonging and appreciation of nature if they have exposure to it from a young age. We take our children on excursions to our local park 3 days a week where we encourage them to discover all the beauty nature has to offer us. 

As our new head teacher you will enjoy:

  • Fully subsidised healthcare 
  • Competitive pay rate 
  • Onsite car parking and a bus stop just outside the centre
  • Ongoing professional development opportunities
  • Team building and appreciation events
  • Paid first aid certification.

Our strong outdoor focus is complemented by a curriculum based on a combination of Montessori and Reggio philosophies. With open-ended resources constantly available to our children we are a child-led purposeful centre where we encourage freedom to express creativity at all times. 

We are lucky to be culturally diverse both children and teacher-wise and this means we celebrate a range of events throughout the year including Matariki, Eid, Chinese New Year and Queen's Birthday to name a few!

Due to internal promotion we are inviting applications for an outstanding head teacher and assistant manager in our infants and toddlers room, who can inspire and lead a small team of teachers while supporting the centre manager in continuing to develop and support our team to grow.

We are a unique centre working hard to teach children the importance of respecting nature and others around them. 

This would be a fantastic centre to develop your own practice with a team who enjoy sharing their knowledge and expertise with others. We offer fantastic opportunities for professional growth and future career options; this includes day-to-day mentoring from a hands-on centre manager.

Come and join our happy, motivated and inspiring team today!
