Nursery Practitioner for Sunshine Room
Are you an excellent Nursery Practitioner with a passion for supporting children with additional needs?
Brent is a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
The council is pursuing a far-reaching transformation agenda that better meets the needs of our community so it is an exciting time to join us.
The person appointed will play a key role, supported by the Teacher and SENDCo, in opening and maximising the success of our new specialist provision for up to twelve nursery-aged children with a diagnosis of Autism. The provision is based within a nursery that has an excellent record of supporting children with additional needs and a strong commitment to inclusion and supporting every child and family to thrive.
The successful candidate will be a talented, passionate and suitably experienced practitioner. They must have a clear understanding and experience of effective teaching and learning. They must be a strong communicator and team player and be able to engage effectively with the children, staff and parents/ carers on a daily basis. They will also need to be enthusiastic, highly motivated and have the belief in the potential of every individual child as well as the drive to support all children to become the best they can be.
