About the employer

We are a small family run nursery who continually keep the welfare and care of children at the heart of everything we do. In January 2000 Little Cherubs opened its first nursery in Sydenham, the subsequent growth and success of the nursery led us to expand Little Cherubs; finding suitable premises in the Shortlands area of Bromley. Both our nurseries are run by a dedicated Management and Staff Team; some of whom have been with us since we originally opened. We are committed to finding the best possible staff to provide parents ‘peace of mind’, knowing that their child is being continually cared for in a safe, healthy and loving environment.
