At Bear Park Herne Bay we strive to be innovative and to support our children to develop their working theories through an inquiry based learning approach. We are on the look out for an amazingly passionate preschool teacher to join us on this journey.  

Within our purpose-built and thoughtfully designed preschool, you will work within an environment that offers 3 preschool classrooms; a separate atelier space; a designated sleep area; & a shared outdoor deck area that leads to the outdoors- including a 'secret garden'. All of this helps to create an environment that is supportive and conducive to meaningful learning opportunities for children and teachers.

We are committed to offering a high quality learning and working environment for both children and teachers, ensuring you have the resources and materials needed to implement a purposeful and intentional learning programme.

Working alongside a passionate teaching team, a centre director, and a pedagogical mentor, you will have ample opportunity to extend your own professional knowledge and practice within a strongly Reggio inspired setting.

With inspiration from Reggio Emilia, our teachers have a passion for inspiring wonder, creativity, imagination and investigation, fostering children's hundred languages and unravelling their theories alongside them.

  • 3 hours of weekly non-contact for collaborative planning with your team
  • Ratios 1:6 preschool
  • Regular paid PD
  • Experienced mentors
  • High quality programme & resources
  • Established 35 years, family owned.

“Our working environment is respectful, it’s a place where you are supported, a place where you are challenged, a place where you are encouraged to do your best and acknowledged for your achievements.”
