Offering an opportunity to Earn as you Learn! You will be mentored and supervised by qualified professionals and be studying towards your NVQ Level 2/3 in Childcare.

Our curriculum is based primarily on our children’s enquiries, so we do a lot of listening and we encourage children to explore the world through play and artistic media such as clay, paint, and model making.

In doing so, we help children to develop skills and knowledge across all areas of learning, and the ability and confidence to become the freethinkers of the future.

We believe that the early years form the most important time in which to establish the core values of humanity in a child’s mind.

Values of respect, empathy, freedom and democracy. To develop children’s mental, moral and social capabilities – i.e. to educate them - is therefore an adult’s primary role.

This is why, at Little Jungle, all adults working directly with children are referred to as Early Years Educators.

And we are now looking for talented and dedicated Apprentice Educators to join our team!
