About

Play & Learn Volunteers

4C for Children invites you to become involved in a new kindergarten readiness program that will help children learn through play. The target audience for this outreach effort is stay-at-home parents as well as family, friend and neighbor caregivers--and the children (birth to age 5) in their care.

4C is facilitating bi-weekly Play & Learn Groups in nine Ohio and Kentucky communities. Volunteers must be willing to commit at least one two-hour time block each month--but twice monthly is preferable so relationships can be built with children and the adults who care for them.

Among volunteers’ responsibilities: helping set up and clean up each Play & Learn session; assisting 4C staff in modeling best practice methods for interacting with children during play; helping caregivers build supportive relationships with each other.

Requirements:

  • Interview with Volunteer Coordinator
  • Undergo criminal and child abuse background checks
  • Complete a six-hour 4C orientation/training
  • Respect various cultural approaches to child-rearing
  • Actively participate and interact with children and families in the group
