  • Qualifications: Ideally hold a Level 3 Early Years qualification (e.g., CACHE Level 3, NVQ Level 3 in Early Years Care and Education, or equivalent).
  • Skills: Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, a patient and nurturing attitude, and the ability to work effectively as part of a team.
