By becoming a Story Starter volunteer you will give a child in a local early years setting/nursery the skills to start primary school ready to read. You’ll open up their lives to the magic of stories and provide crucial language development in a way which is fun for both you and the child!
How does it work?
As a Story Starter you will support three children aged 3-5 years' old on a one-to-one basis, using play and stories to develop and enrich their use of language.
You’ll need to commit to volunteering at a local nursery for one hour, twice a week during nursery hours.
You’ll receive professional training and support to ensure that you are best able to support young children and feel comfortable in a modern nursery setting./p>
