Being a Story Starter with Beanstalk is a fantastic opportunity to make sure local pre-school children start school ready to learn to read. Working with three children on a one to one basis twice weekly, you will build strong relationships and really make a difference. By sharing some amazing books you have the opportunity to help develop a child’s language skills and show them the magic of reading!
You will visit the three children at their pre-school or nursery two mornings per week and share with them some beautiful picture books with which you will be provided.
Story Starter volunteers receive excellent training and ongoing support and are provided with all the resources they need. It is an extremely rewarding role with the opportunity to make a real difference to a child’s life.
Experience with young children is useful and we do request a commitment of one year. Beanstalk is committed to safeguarding the welfare of children and a DBS check will be required for this role.
