Description

To assist in setting up attractive lunch tables and serving a simple lunch consisting of home made soup, rolls, meats, fruit, vegetables and drinks. Lunch takes into account the various ages of children attending and reflects the needs of babies and babies at the weaning stage. We offer families tasters of foods new to them and encouraging families to enjoy this opportunity would be part of your role. Helping to clear up the lunch area ready for play activities to resume, would complete this opportunity within a happy team.

Organisation aims and objectives

We aim to support parents and their children under 5 years. In Mid Craigie many parents are unemployed resulting in low self esteem and self confidence. Juvenile crime is high. The local school, including the nursery department, has the highest exclusion rate in Dundee. We will provide activities for both children and parents designed to improve social wellbeing.
