  • Some pet care (dogs and cats)
  • Organisation of the children’s schedules and related administration
  • Cooking for the children. Ability to provide balanced nutritious meals for the children.

The candidate will need to work closely with the family and other household staff in the day to day organisation of the children’s schedules as well as being responsible for all normal nursery duties. All of the children are very happy and confident and enjoy doing activities which promote their varied interests.
