What makes us different

About our Clubs

Each Club has a Club Co-ordinator, who is responsible for the smooth day to day running of their club and ensuring the children are engaged with plenty of fun activities. They organise the team, ensure the children are safe and communicate with parents. They usually have an Assistant Club Co-ordinator who they work closely with each day. The number of Play Leaders depends on the amount of children in the club. We work on a ratio of one adult to 9.25 children for all ages of children.

What do we look for in a
Play Leader?

A Play Leader is responsible for supporting the day to day activities in the Club and ensuring the children are given opportunities to play freely or engage in organised activities. Time at our clubs is the children’s free/leisure time and the activities that you set up for the children will be child-led and influenced by the children's likes and dislikes. Your aim for the day is to use your skills and experience to ensure the children enjoy their time with us.
