The Dragon Club is a small, vibrant breakfast and after school club that runs from 8am – 9am and from 3pm – 6pm from Monday to Thursday in term time only. The Club is often full, with a waiting list, and the children ask to come to Dragon Club even if their parents are at home ! Our Dragons are provided with a healthy breakfast and there is a five star cook who prepares a home cooked evening tea. 
The Dragons are very keen on spending time outdoors and have several lovely areas to use, including their own Forest School area, two hard-standing playgrounds, a wooded area with a timber trim-trail, a large open field and a small cosy fenced yard. The children can choose from a variety of indoor or outdoor activities, anything from cooking to tag rugby.

The Dragon Club is looking for someone who enjoys encouraging children to rest, relax and have fun in an enthusiastic and positive way. This post would suit a gentle, friendly and outgoing person who can work well as part of a happy, professional team.

Playwork qualifications and previous experience are not essential, but would be beneficial. The applicant must have the Right to Work in the UK and must provide up to date references. An enhanced DBS will be necessary on application. There is no reliable public transport in the village, so a car is essential.
