    Happy Days is the biggest nursery provider in Cornwall, with 16 settings in both Cornwall and Devon. We are currently growing our business and expanding our operations to include new purpose built nurseries.

    We are looking for a Peripatetic Nursery Manger to supply cover for maternity leave, long and short term sickness, annual leave etc. throughout Cornwall.

    The ideal candidate will be flexible and adapt quickly to change. The nature of this role will mean that you may be working in one nursery for 9 months to cover maternity leave and then move around nurseries week to week to cover for holiday.

    You will be involved in;

    •        Day to day running of the nursery to achieve and maintain high standards of care and education

    •        Mentoring, guiding and developing the teams

    •        Providing professional advice and support on childcare development

You must have been qualified for at least 2 years with a minimum NVQ level 3 qualification in childcare, or equivalent. The ability to achieve an outstanding OFSTED inspection as well as possessing excellent management and leadership skills is essential. You must have an awareness of financial management and business management, and experience of using Microsoft applications. Strong communication skills are essential, as is the ability to analyse information and make sound business decisions.  At least 5 years of practical experience at a senior level in a childcare establishment, and experience of managing a budget is desirable but not essential. You must hold an extensive working knowledge of the EYFS and implications for children’s development through observation, assessment and record keeping and good understanding of statutory requirements.
