Job Description

Required for 22.25 hours per week, term time. In conjunction with the manager and other Nursery staff, you will plan, through the medium of Gaelic, a curriculum which supports and guides children’s all round learning and development, and plan and organise the play session.

In line with the Scottish Government’s intention to increase free nursery hours for young children we are planning to increase the nursery service at Sgoil Araich Lacasdail. The nursery will be open from 8.30am to 5.30pm throughout 50 weeks of the year, rather than solely the 38 weeks of school term-time.

We are now searching for anyone interested in becoming part of this exciting Early Years expansion which will spread to all nurseries throughout the islands by 2020. This brings opportunity for anyone interested in starting a career in Early Learning & Childcare, or making use of their experience as a parent to develop skills and support more young children through their early experiences.

If you already have a childcare qualification we would love to hear from you (if you are successfully recruited you would be entitled to our rate of pay for qualified staff of £10.14 + £1.08 Distant Islands Allowance per hour) If you are new to nursery work but are interested in developing new skills we can support you to achieve your qualification whilst you are working for us.

If you would like to find out more information please call the Early Years Office on 01851 822655.

Finally, we would encourage anyone interested to apply for these new posts in Sgoil Araich Lacasdail. Working with young children is both fun and rewarding and we look forward to welcoming you to the team!

Salary for the above post is inclusive of Distant Islands Allowance. Appointment to the post will be on the first point of grade.


You must have proven childcare experience working with young children and their families in an early years setting and a willingness to work toward a qualification that meets the Scottish Social Services Council’s requirements for Practitioners. The ability to speak and read Gaelic is essential for this post.
