Family in London seeks Reggio Approach-conversant nanny

One of our network member families, a bilingual family in East London, is looking for a part-time, Italian-speaking nanny for their daughter, with interest in The Reggio Approach, and ideally experience in working in dialogue with Reggio's principles.

Ideally the person would start in January 2020, when their daughter is about 8 months old, but the family can be flexible. They are looking for about 24 hours a week, ideally spread over three days, but again they can work around the nanny's schedule.

If you know of anyone who may be interested, please feel free to contact Sally Davies, or put them in touch with her via her email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Girotondo Preschool seek an imaginative preschool educator, West London

Girotondo Preschool, in Chiswick (W. London) is looking for a passionate and dedicated educator (full or part-time), to join their established team of educators. 

'Girotondo is a 20-place, Reggio-inspired preschool. Our aim is to provide a space for children, educators and families working together in a stimulating environment through multidisciplinary enquiry projects. We are dedicated to the ongoing development of all staff, and the person we are looking for will be a reflective, responsive individual who constantly seeks challenge and innovation and is able to inspire and collaborate with her colleagues in our everyday learning environment.

Our preschool has quickly become embedded in the community around. Parents and children attending Girotondo all live in the area and are of diverse culture and nationality, which makes our school a rich and diverse environment.

As a Reggio-inspired preschool, we are committed to innovation and creativity, to explore resources and the outside world, and to expose children to different learning and developmental experiences. We explore the surroundings and green areas around the school every day; walking or taking public transport and are not afraid to get wet or muddy!

. We are looking for an educator able to think outside the box, to bring innovation and to be open to continuous learning and development.'

We have had a sudden increase of children, all starting this month, and more are coming to visit the school every week, so we really need to find another educator to join us asap. Hopefully there will be nice people interested in the position who are either subscribed to Sightlines Initiative or have the same mindset as we all have anyway. We are looking for an educator able to think outside the box, to bring innovation and to be open to continuous learning and development.'
