Noah’s Ark Playscheme provides a valuable respite care service for children with a learning disability and their families in Hertsmere. We accept children with learning disabilities aged 5-16 yrs and will accommodate siblings where possible.
The scheme runs for one week at Easter and four weeks during the Summer holidays, Monday – Friday 10.00am – 3.00pm. We also hold activity days during the Xmas holidays.
Where we are:
We run from a local school in Borehamwood.
What we offer:
We provide fun and stimulating activities, outings and entertainment, for example, trips to soft play, theatre, farms and parks, bowling, as well as on-site activities such as bouncy castle, creative play, entertainers etc.
Caring for your children:
On arrival at the playscheme, each child is greeted by a member of the friendly staffing team led by the Head Play Leader. Every day, each child has a named member of staff who is responsible for their individual care.
Children bring their own packed lunch; drinks and snacks are provided, taking dietary requirements into account. Medication can be administered where necessary, with the consent of a parent/carer.
Daily cost : £10 (concessions available)
The Ofsted-registered scheme is led by dedicated and enthusiastic staff and we take volunteers over 16 years old.
Job opportunities are available for Play Assistants during the running of playschemes.
