Two Rivers Childcare, based at Twynham Primary School, Christchurch


About the Post

Our after-school club Childcare Workers will provide high quality childcare for the children of Twynham Primary School each afternoon, once school ends. We aim to strike a balance for our children of fun activities coupled with tasks which are productive/educational. We need childcare workers who are just as confident leading a parachute game as they are helping children with their homework! We aim to offer an after-school club provision that is valued and trusted by the community of parents/carers of Twynham Primary School.


This is an opportunity to work with wonderful children in our new purpose-built school-based facility, alongside a team of childcare workers who are professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The working hours could suit individuals who prefer to work during term times only. We are also currently advertising separate vacancies for our breakfast club provision. Candidates are welcome to apply for both positions if they wish to work both mornings and afternoons.  In this case, only one application form will be required but will need to state that both roles are being applied for.


Who we are looking for

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate that they:

  • hold a Level 2 Childcare qualification, or have equivalent experience in a childcare setting.
  • are committed to undertaking further training or development as required.
  • have a secure knowledge of child development and ways in which children can be encouraged to learn.
  • have the ability to establish good relationships with children, parents and other staff, communicating clearly and sensitively. Have awareness of the need for confidentiality.
  • can work co-operatively with the staff team and with parents to share knowledge and expertise for the benefit of the children.
  • be committed to the principles of equality of opportunity for all.
