Playworker, Sevenoaks, Kent

Location:Sevenoaks, Kent
Hours:3.5 hours per day, 5 days per week
Job title:Playworker
Salary:Dependent on experience and qualifications
Closing date:23 March 2018


We are looking for enthusiastic and passionate playworkers to join our team providing high quality and inclusive childcare after school.  We have vacancies across all of our settings at Sevenoaks Primary, New Ash Green Primary and Hartley Academy but are also looking to expand within the surrounding areas over the next term or 2.  

Contracted hours will generally be from 2.30pm-6pm term time in the after school club but there is the potential to work more hours during the school holidays in our holiday playschemes.

Applicants should have experience working with children and young people and strive to provide the best play opportunities to support their individual interests and their learning and development.  Ideally, they will have knowledge of Playwork theory and the EYFS.  First aid and basic safeguarding training is preferable but not required as is a Playwork qualification.  Successful applicants will be required to get a DBS if not already signed up to the update service and provide details of references.

The role of each playworker will be to facilitate play, plan, observe and evaluate and identify how to extend play to support the children’s learning and development.  We provide after school care for children aged from 4-18 years, some with additional needs.
