Job description:

Wanted - A very special, kind and funny person to help us learn and grow!

We would like somebody who would like to get wet and muddy with us in the garden. We would like you to keep us busy with all your exciting activities and fill our days with fun and laughter. We are looking for a brilliant story reader complete with funny voices. You must join us in our journeys to faraway lands on exciting adventures, and really listen when we talk to encourage our thoughts and ideas. It is essential that you can dance around like a banana and hop like a bunny. You need to have a kind smile and give great cuddles so that you can rock us to sleep when we are tired and cranky. We really need somebody who will always put us first and work hard to keep us safe and happy. We would like you to prepare yummy snacks but not get cross when we chew them up, spit them out and wipe our hands on your trousers! But it’s not all fun and games, you must be happy to wipe our bums without complaint and let us wipe our snot on your shoulders. The grown-ups say you also have to do all the boring paperwork that grown-ups have to do and talk to our mummies and daddies about how brilliant we are! We are not saying you need to fly to work with an umbrella but if you could that would be great!

We can’t wait to meet you!
