Nursery Nurse

The Activity Den caters for ages ranging from 0-11 years, offering a range of energetic and creative activities in a regulated, safe and happy environment. One day you could be donning a pirate patch, and on another you could be hosting a superhero party. It really is that diverse, so each shift will be an adventure and no two days will ever be the same.

We’re a team. Imagine working in an environment where support and wellbeing are second nature. Our team of nursery staff and managers extend their experience and knowledge as often as they can so we can all work together to achieve guest excellence.


Our Activity Den is incredibly popular with guests and their children, and you’ll help to create a brilliant, fun-filled and stimulating environment, ensuring the children have a good time at all times, whilst keeping an eye on safety and learning in the setting. 

As you can imagine, even though this is a leisure setting, we still have to make sure we adhere to industry rules and regulations, so completing paperwork will be an essential requirement of the role.

You’ll be someone who is naturally cheerful, friendly and approachable, and who works well in a team environment. Building relationships and trust with parents is just as important as being able to communicate with children.

Due to the sensitive nature of this role the successful applicant will be required to undergo an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB) with Child List Barring Check. This disclosure, together with other selection information, will need to be satisfactory to the Company for employment to commence.


We have the following contracts available on a flexible basis, which means your days and hours of work could vary each week but you will always receive your contracted hours each period. 

  • 90 hours per 4-week period 
  • 120 hours per 4-week period
Your shifts will fall between the hours of 8am and 7pm.
As our village is open 365 days of the year, your working hours will include weekends, public / bank holidays and during Christmas and / or New Year on a rota basis.


Essential requirements:

  • NVQ Level 3 in childcare or equivalent
  • Naturally outgoing and enthusiastic personality
  • To demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively and build rapport with both adults and children in groups of different sizes
  • Naturally cheerful

Desirable requirements:

  • Previous experience in childcare or a similar environment
  • Previous experience working within the customer service industry
