About the employer

Greenhall is a Special Nursery school for children aged 2-5 years old with additional needs in Communication and Language, Physical and Personal, Social and Emotional Development. Little Learners is our governor-run nursery provision, open to the wider community for children aged 3 months – school age.

Our motto, ‘Learning together, having fun!’ applies to staff as well as the children. We aim to provide high quality, child centred education which will maximise every child's potential. We are dedicated to whole-child development and want to inspire our children to be actively engaged in their learning, to be as independent as possible, to take risks, to learn from and with others and to believe in themselves. We want our children to know they have a 'voice' and to provide them with the tools to use this. We want to give our children the best start – to lay the foundations for later learning.
