  • Do you have a passion for nature and aren't afraid to get your hands dirty?
  • Are you a head teacher looking for exposure to management responsibilities?

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 and paid attendance.

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.

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.

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!
