There are a wide range of Early Years roles available in Hertfordshire and you may choose to work in a nursery or reception provision within a school, or at a standalone nursery school, at a family centre or at a private preschool or day nursery.

Early Years Teachers and Early Years Practitioners may work in schools or in private, voluntary or independent (PVI) settings, including preschools and day care. They work alongside teachers and leaders to support childcare and the learning and development of children aged 0–5. An NVQ Level 3 qualification in early years is mandatory in some posts.

Graduate, qualified EYPs, and those holding the EYT qualification may work as early years specialist teaching assistants in Nursery and Reception classes in maintained schools alongside class teachers and other teaching assistants. The EYT/EYP qualification is not yet recognised as fully qualified teacher status (QTS).
