St. Luke's Church Halls
St. Luke’s Nursery is a warm, nurturing pack-away preschool set in the heart of the St. Johns area of Tunbridge Wells. It has a strong community background and has been running since the 1960’s under various owners. Its happy, lively, friendly ethos means that St. Luke’s is a highly regarded setting within the community, as well as being deemed a ‘Outstanding’ setting by Ofsted. The staff and community is one of its strongest characteristics and makes it a really special Preschool; it is this which draws people in.
As the manager of St. Luke’s Nursery School, your roles and responsibilities will be wide ranging, varying from the physical aspects of setting up and packing away the preschool in the beginning and end of the day, to managing the team. This means working closely with the owner and a small team of approximately six.
As manager, you will also work closely with children and families, ensuring children are always kept safe; an important part of this role includes being the Designated Safeguarding Lead at the setting. To support this, you will ensure that all staff are trained in safeguarding, understand and follow all policies and procedures that are required for an Early Years Setting. The manager ensures that all legislation is compiled with and followed; including Health and Safety, Food Hygiene, inclusion, and safeguarding.
It is also essential that you lead by example when it comes to planning, developing play and monitoring progress within the setting, using the statutory framework as your planning tool.
