Looking for a new role? Teepee Day Nursery is an award-winning, family-run nursery. Founded in 2003, we have a fantastic local reputation and 2021 looks set to be another amazing year for us with phenomenal occupancy coupled with exciting plans for growth and continual improvement.

There are so, so many benefits of working with us. Day nurseries tend to be either small settings or larger chains. Teepee Day Nursery is the best of both worlds; we are a small, loving children’s nursery with the award-winning mentality and best practice of a much larger business.

We believe that we do the most important job in the whole world and we don’t take this responsibility lightly but we do make it fun, having lots of smiles and laughter along the way. We aren’t really a work team; we are more like a ‘work family’ and we never settle for anything less than our best shot at anything we do. This means that you get to experience a very supportive workplace and are surrounded by like-minded colleagues, who want the same as you – happy children; happy team; happy parents; and we’ve got the awards to prove it!

What We Can Offer:

  • Very competitive salary and bonuses up to £22,000 depending on qualifications and experience
  • Lots of extras and perks, including additional holiday for long service
  • Free lunch!
  • Fantastic wellbeing package, including health assistance programme, counselling, onsite acupressure massage, retail discounts at shops and restaurants
  • Complete uniform, even down to a bobble hat
  • Really forward-thinking culture
  • Fantastic induction, training and career progression, plus a great reputation for your CV (paying for further training and qualifications)
