About the employer

At City View, fun and learning go hand-in-hand. We believe that having a qualified teacher in each of our settings supports high-quality learning outcomes for all of our children. We have come a long way since we introduced qualified teachers into our provision, and we believe that this has helped to raise the standards of learning to a high quality; the high standards of provision inspire the children to learn and encourage them to reach their full potential. The results across the whole provision have helped to boost the status of our settings. City View has a bright and spacious hall, giving us the opportunity to provide a wide range of activities with plenty of room for our children to explore and learn. The hall is arranged into areas that include a relaxing sensory/ book area, a space for creative/messy play, a construction zone and a large dining area for the children to enjoy their meals together. The children have open access to all the resources and ample room to move around freely.
