Volunteers

Our setting recognises that qualifications and training make an important contribution to the quality of the care and education provided by early years settings. As part of our commitment to quality, we offer placements to volunteers undertaking early years qualifications and training or to volunteers who wish to find out if they would like to work in early years before embarking on a qualification.

We aim to provide for volunteers on placement with us experience that contributes to the successful completion of their studies and that provide examples of quality practice in early years care and education.

We require all volunteers to  meet the `suitable person` requirements of Ofsted and a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check is carried out. We supervise all volunteers and do not allow them to have unsupervised access to children. All volunteers are required to keep to our Confidentiality Policy. We provide volunteers at their first session with a short induction on how our setting is managed, how our sessions are organised and our policies and procedures and they also receive a comprehensive induction pack.

We make the needs of the children paramount by not admitting volunteers in numbers which hinder the essential work of the setting.

If you are interested in volunteering at the setting, please call the Business Manager on 07932 154133.
