Crèche worker

  • VO41295


Description

Each session last approx 1 hour. Ideally we try to work on a 1-1 basis with the child. The activities are very much dependant on the needs of the child. As the ages range from birth to pre-school this can be very varied. It could be watching over a sleeping baby to stretching your imagination to create a magical kingdom with super-heroes, princesses and dragons. One minute you could be sitting reading a book with a child and the next singing and playing “ring-a ring- a- roses”
