Babyzone Barnet

6th March 2024

Calling all changemakers, young and seasoned! Are you craving some fun, purpose, and a chance to make a real difference in your community?

We are a safe space for families with children aged 0-6 years old to come and play in our premium soft play area, as well as participate in one of the 25 classes that we offer.

We operate out of Unitas Youth Zone and are open on Thursdays (term time) from 9:30am – 2:30pm.

We are completely free to attend, no sign-up is needed: families from all backgrounds are welcome. We opened in January 2023 so have been open for just over a year in Barnet… And now have 160 families (over 200 children) coming every Thursday!

We would love some strong volunteers to help with setting up and packing down. We also would love volunteers who love to sing, play and read to help run activities with the families.

Each volunteer brings their own unique ideas on what we can do to enhance the support families receive. There are many ways to get involved and flexibility on how many hours you’d like to be involved, which include but are not limited to:

  • Set up for the day (8:30am – 9:30am)
  • Welcoming families as they come into Babyzone (anytime from 9:30am)
  • Managing an activity for families to participate in which includes anything from arts & crafts, to dance, music, puzzles and sport! We’re open to hear your ideas! (anytime from 9:30am)
  • Sorting and storing equipment that falls out of place (anytime from 9:30am)
  • Pack down for the day (2pm – 3pm)

We would love to hear from you. Embark on our volunteer programme to spark positive ripples in the Barnet community!
