About the employer
As the business blossomed it became apparent that a larger premises were required, so 177 Leigh Road was purchased and converted into a Children's Day Care Nursery.
The inaugural opening was in June 2006 and since then the premises has been extended to allow more room for the little ones.
Due to the level of care provided and an excellent reputation for Childcare another premises were located to cater for the needs of local parents in the Eastleigh area. In December of 2009 Cuddles and Care Too was born. Whilst preparing the premisises of Cuddles and Care Too we where approached to purchase the Crescent Pre-school which transferred to our ownership in 2008. All sites share the management team who are all well trained and motivated (they are all mums), and the same philosophy for your childcare needs.
Both Nurseries are open 5 days a week for 51 weeks of the year and, the pre-school is open during Hampshire County Councils term time.
The successful candidates will work towards the Children and Young Person’s Workforce Level 2 alongside Functional Skills in Literacy, Numeracy and ICT if necessary.
