To help with the smooth running of Playhouse, we rely on two parents or carers to carry out rota duties each day. This is integral to our community playgroup principals.
We ask you to help out one morning every half term for the number of mornings your child attends. Those heavily pregnant or with newborns under 3 months are exempt. If you cannot do your day, as allocated at the beginning of each half term, you can organise to swap or pay £10 from your £20 rota deposit for Playhouse to arrange a replacement.
You will be paired with one other parent/carer on your rota day, making it a wonderful way to meet other members and it provides a vital support to the Playgroup leaders as well as other members. Rota duties:
Arrive early at 9.20 to help with set-up on Mondays & Tuesdays
Offer tea and coffee to members
Unload the dishwasher
Cut fruit and get water cups ready for the children’s snack time
Help to set up for circle time/ tidy up toys
Stay a little past 12 to help tidy up or move toys out
