So What's TLC All About?

 

 

Expectations

As a volunteer you would be intimately involved in daily care and development of every sort of infant, from the fragile premature babies to the rambunctious toddlers.

Childcare includes obvious tasks such as feeding, changing nappies, bathing and cuddling, as well as less obvious tasks like sterilizing bottles and teats; emptying nappy bins; mopping floors; washing, folding and packing away continuous loads of laundry; dispensing medications; nightshifts as well as occasional hospital visits which may involve waits of six to eight hours.

As a volunteer you would be assigned to various nursery duties on a daily schedule. You would be required to work approximately 10 hours a day, 6 days a week. There is a mandatory meeting held once a week where volunteers and management discuss matters relating to the nursery, children and life at TLC.

The task of caring for our babies is demanding, rewarding and immensely satisfying.

Thank you for you time - We hope that you are moved to join our team!
