We have a vision that childcare can be more accessible and more affordable, and that the community can have a role in supporting the delivery of that childcare.
Our project - kindly funded by One Manchester recruits and trains parents and other community members to join a team of helpers who support the delivery of childcare sessions that enable busy families to access work or education/ training.
Supported by our project cooordinator the team are delivering the following sessions, but want to do more
Monday Morning creche
Thursday Stay and Play
There is volunteer learning portfolio which supports the volunteer in a practical way and is an excellent tool for them to use going forward into a job role as it shows developments, training and next steps.
The volunteers take part in planning meetings before they take part in a childcare session and this gives them knowledge on providing age appropriate activities and learning opportunities for children.
