What we're looking for

Are you great with children and adults and passionate about introducing children and toddlers to the natural world? We are looking for a calm, organised and passionate individual to lead, plan, prepare and deliver our new parent and toddler group. You will be excited by selecting themes for each monthly session and developing activities and games which get children and families outside and inspired by the natural world. You will also be passionate about the RSPB and can support their message through all your work.

The skills you need

We're looking for pro-active, outgoing, friendly people with the ability and knowledge to enthuse toddlers and families about birds and wildlife and create those last connections to nature. You will need to be great with toddlers and adults so that everyone can get something from the sessions. The sessions are as much about giving families the confidence to take the children outdoors as getting toddlers outside. You will need to be well organised, to plan and run these sessions and also IT literate to advertise.

Your time

One day per month
All year round

What's in it for you?

As well as making a difference to a local nature reserve in beautiful surroundings, this is a great opportunity to meet people from a wide variety of backgrounds and to work as part of a small, friendly team. Our Valley tots leader will get a buzz from introducing toddlers and families to nature and creating that connection which can last a life time. Volunteers will also have the opportunity, if they wish, to receive training on running a session and in how to recruit members to gain further support for our work, but this is dependent on the individual.

We are looking for an individual or a group of people to run this exciting session.
