We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who would like to share a short activity or demonstration of their special skill or interest they have with the children in our preschool. This could be cooking, plants, animals, science, nature, music, health, dance, sport, languages – or anything else that would interest small children!

We are a community-based charity pre-school for 2-5years olds. We provide quality early years education and care for families in the local community, by those that really care.
