Our nursery at RAF Brize Norton is one of 11 settings in the RAFAKidz family. The nursery itself has around 130 children with spaces in continued demand, supported by a team of circa 52 practitioners.

We will give you a great induction experience, training and development opportunities and you’ll be learning on the job with our amazing colleagues – it’s a real team effort!  A typical day in the role will include 

  • Being hands on and creative with messy and outdoor play activities 

  • Helping with meals and snack times 

  • Keeping records on children’s progress and daily activities and adventures 

  • Maintaining highest standards of safety, cleanliness and hygiene
