Here at Sandhills Day Nurseries, we have a wide range of opportunities for careers in childcare to both challenge and fulfil your working life.

For those of you that haven’t worked in childcare for a few years, or are simply looking to start a new career in this sector, we would encourage you to look at our vacancy listings and contact a Sandhills Day Nursery near you to see if we have any opportunities for you to come and join the team!

We are looking for fun and enthusiastic, child-focused practitioners with lots of energy who can contribute a variety of skills to our established and fabulous teams.


Someone who has an understanding of child development, along with a sound knowledge of the EYFS and who has experience of implementing this within a private day nursery setting would be the ideal candidate for Sandhills Day Nurseries.

Sandhills Day Nurseries are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of the children within our care and expects all those employed by the Company to share this commitment.

All successful applicants will be subject to an enhanced DBS disclosure. The Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) helps employers make safer recruitment decisions.
