Students and Volunteers

From time to time we are lucky enough to have wonderful volunteers who bring their wealth of knowledge and experience to Catkins. It's lovely for the children to have someone different around them who is able to give extra cuddles and read just one more story!

We also offer work experience for people studying childcare at college / school as we see this as a great way to support the future of childcare.
