Early Start Volunteering Programme

As an Early Start Volunteer you will be volunteering alongside trained professionals in Newham delivering Parent/Carer and Toddler sessions such as; Messy Play, Stay and Play and Music and Movement.

We ask for a minimum commitment of three hours a week based in a Children's Centre within the London Borough of Newham. In return we offer a training programme including:

  • Induction to Volunteering
  • Level One Safeguarding
  • Early Years Foundation Stage
  • Five to Thrive (early brain development) 
  • Oral Health Promotion

You will also have a linked Mentor at your placement venue plus on going support.

Once training is completed and you are cleared to volunteer you will join a knowledgeable Best Start in Life Children's Centre Team.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone considering a role in a Children's Centre environment as you will gain experience, give back to the community while raising your understanding of Children's Centres, child development and early education.
