About this opportunity

Lutheran Care is looking for Crèche Assistant volunteers to assist in our crèches located in Ingle Farm and other locations across the northern suburbs in the City of Salisbury area. You have the opportunity to become part of a team helping to care for children attending the crèche by:

• Assisting to provide creative, fun and engaging activities for children aged 0 to 6yrs • Helping children to connect with each other and enjoy their time together • Providing a warm, welcoming, nurturing and inclusive environment for children.

The Family Zone provides programs designed to help increase the confidence and skills of parents with young children. We offer parenting groups, home visiting, conversational English, Middle Eastern Women’s Group and financial counselling.

Crèche is provided to parents attending services at the Family Zone and other sites as required.
