Are you interested in joining our team at Thornhill Day Nursery?

Help us to Build the Team at Our Flagship Day Nursery

Thornhill Day Nursery in Derby is due to reopen in January 2021 following an extensive renovation and extension. The nursery will become the flagship childcare and day care centre in the City of Derby, and we are looking for unique and talented people to be part of our team.

What Roles are Available?

We are looking to build the best nursery team there is from the ground up. The positions we are looking to recruit for include:

  • Deputy Manager
  • Third in Charge
  • Room Leaders
  • Nursery Practitioners
  • Nursery Cooks
  • Cleaning Staff

What do we look for?

It’s a simple ethos, but we’re selective in our recruitment. We only choose to employ the best childcare practitioners. To fit in with us, you have to share our passion and demonstrate your interest in nurturing and inspiring children.

What we can do for you

You bring the enthusiasm and skills to succeed, and we’ll offer you a great benefits package, a leadership team that’s approachable and supportive, and the opportunity to be involved in working parties and assist in decision making. What’s more, Tommies pays above the National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage.

Help us to look after the children, and we’ll look after you. Not only will the children grow, your confidence and expertise as a Tommies team member will, too.

Why Work at Thornhill?

Imagine everything you hoped working in a day nursery would be—a nursery where each room features state of the art facilities and the best resources available.

We’ve worked closely with our team of childcare experts and partners to make Thornhill the most inspiring day nursery in Derby. All the stops are being pulled out to provide young children with the most exciting and memorable early years’ experience.

Our staff certainly haven’t been forgotten about, either. We are creating a quiet staff room away from the action where you can sit back, relax, and take a break from the hustle and bustle.
