Group of Childcare Playworkers

Why work for Funtastic Kids?

“Children thrive in the care of professional and dedicated staff, who provide a highly welcoming and nurturing environment. Exemplary relationships between staff provide an excellent role model for children’s behaviour. Children settle quickly and establish strong bonds with all staff. They receive lots of praise and encouragement. Children are extremely happy and form friendships as they play.”
