How long have you
been with us?

Years

What did you do prior to joining us?

I’ve done several jobs; I worked in graphic design, I was a publican, a teaching assistant and a mother!

Do you have another job or responsibility that runs alongside your role at Class Of Their Own?

I also work as a Teaching Assistant in a Primary School, currently Individual Needs

Do you have hobbies/interests that run alongside your role at Class Of Their Own?

I love live music, producing artwork and organising parties.

What do you do in your spare time?

I spend my spare time doing all of the above but also spend a lot of time cooking for my family and growing plants and flowers.

What made you want to join Class Of Their Own?

I really enjoy working with children, I needed a second job and the hours were suitable for my needs.

What makes you stay at Class Of Their Own?

Everyone is so nice! I have great fun with my colleagues and I believe in the ethos of the company. I feel supported and looked after as well as listened to. I know that if or when I wanted to go for a promotion within Class Of Their Own that I would get plenty of help and advice.

How have you changed/developed since being at Class Of Their Own?

There are always training opportunities and through this I have gained confidence in staff management. We’re always kept up to date with all the latest changes in legislation and this supports any work within the childcare sector. Getting positive feedback from your colleagues is a real boost – helps keep you young and energetic!

What is your favourite part of the job and why?

I love seeing young people ‘figuring it out for themselves’. We have a wonderful opportunity to help young people learn new skills – making friendships, building self-esteem, improving at sport/reading/drawing, talking to adults – just gaining confidence in themselves in all aspects of life. It is also great to see colleagues gaining new skills and confidence too!

Would you recommend Class Of Their? If so, why?

Absolutely! It’s a great place to work, we celebrate diversity throughout (staff and children). We have lots of fun and we create a nurturing and supportive community both in and out of the workplace.

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.
