Conkers Nursery - one-to-one volunteers
Do you like children? Our pre-school nursery is looking for volunteers who would like to give some one-to-one help to young children who are struggling.
Everyone learns faster with a little one-to-one support. For some children this is even more important. Noise can be overwhelming and learning to focus can be hard. Or it could be that a child has a hearing problem and needs that one to one time to develop their communication skills.
So we are looking for volunteers who can sit with a child for an hour, to help them learn, to help them be the best they can be, and to learn the skills they will need once they reach primary school.
Giving them this attention now will help to prevent them falling behind later at school - these early years are so important - and your time will have a big impact.
If you have worked with children in the past, or have skills that you think will be useful in helping these children, we would love to hear from you.
You will need a DBS check - if you don't have one, we will apply for one for you.
