Playgroup volunteers needed

We are looking for regular volunteers to help in our Playgroups at both our Hemingford Road and Ross Street sites, who would be able to give us a regular and reliable commitment (term time only).

Can you help us?

Do you have:
• A genuine love of children aged between 2-5 years
• The ability to empathise with them
• A desire to see young children make good progress in their development
• A good sense of fun
• Patience

Volunteers play an important and valuable role in assisting the staff, which ensures each child has the opportunity to take part in all aspects of the session.
You would gain valuable experience of working with young children
