Loughborough’s best Reggio Emilia inspired Children’s Day Nursery and Pre-School is always looking for enthusiastic, qualified staff to work in the Baby, Toddler and Preschool sections of our Nursery.


Situated across two settings, in unique surroundings, we are proud to provide the best childcare in the area.  Children are stimulated through our resident art teacher, enthused by our visiting chef, motivated by our resident sports coach, inspired by our forest school and enthused by our staff.  Do you think you could be part of the team, constantly striving to create an environment where enquiring minds can develop?

As with the children in our care, we are also growing, with more settings opening soon, and this will create more opportunities for those that want to develop their skills and careers.
