– Support the implementation of EYFS curriculum guidelines and assess children’s development in line with these standards.
– Build strong relationships with parents and guardians, providing regular feedback on their child’s progress and well-being.
– Contribute to the continuous improvement of our early years provision through sharing ideas and participating in professional development opportunities.

– Hold a relevant qualification in Early Childhood Education or a related field.
