Salary: £10.00 to £12.00 per hour £250-£500 sign on bonus

Hours: Full Time

Job Location: Windsor, Berkshire

We are currently recruiting for a passionate Nursery Practitioner with an NVQ Level 2 or 3, to join our wonderful Windsor nursery school.

The 24-place nursery, located in the old St Stephen’s School Rooms, is a recently refurbished, bright and open room with windows on both sides and a warm, highly experienced team. It caters for children aged 2-4 and is currently growing again, post covid. 


This nursery has been a key part of the local community for 25 years and has a warm, family atmosphere that we would expect you to help maintain. Although it is part of the small group of nurseries – Alba Nurseries – it does not have a corporate feel. Practitioners work closely with other Alba Nurseries nearby, such as Teeny Boppers Montessori School in Slough, to exchange ideas, leverage deep specialist expertise and for advice. It truly is one large family.


It has wonderful Montessori resources and, as part of the Alba Nurseries group, we are transitioning to an eco-friendly way of operating. We focus on high quality early years education and on fostering Kindness, Curiosity and Mindfulness in our pupils. 


As a Nursery Nurse working with us, you can expect a competitive salary, excellent training and development as well as a caring and passionate place to work.  Very unusually for this sector, Alba Nurseries also offers excellent career progression possibilities. 


This role will involve supporting the Nursery Manager in delivering our unique, top tier early years Alba curriculum – Alba Succeed Programme – in a kind and nurturing environment.  Drawing on the latest research in pedagogy, child development and neuro-science, this curriculum marries up Montessori principles, with EYFS, in a flexible way that allows each pupil to meet their developmental needs and to thrive.  As a Nursery Practitioner you will be a key contributor to ongoing fine tuning and improvement of Alba Succeed.


Through Alba Succeed, we provide the best preparation for entry into primary schools, without the pressure of a pre-school. We work in close partnership with parents/carers to deliver the best results for each pupil. Kindness, Curiosity and Mindfulness, as well as environmental awareness, are at the core of everything we do, helping create a solid foundation for each pupil’s future.
