We are seeking an experienced music and play facilitator for under 3’s to work with us to deliver a new curriculum of creative and sensory play classes for 0-3 year olds, called Little Lights. You must be experienced in leading early year groups and or classes and be able to confidently communicate and engage with adults and carers.

Unexpected Places is a diverse charity in three parts: a touring professional theatre company creating devised, imaginative performances which take our audiences to unexpected places, a thriving youth theatre ‘Light UP’ that focuses on providing value for money classes for over 400 children a week to foster creativity, confidence and curiosity, and the newest strand to our organisation - UP Studios, a theatre space to support young people and local creatives.


There are a number of perks to working with Unexpected Places including free rehearsal space, regular training, staff socials (our latest was a Goga workshop - Yoga with goats) and working with a supportive, creative team. 


Little Lights was initially funded by the National Lottery, to deliver creative and sensory play classes for 0-3 year olds and their families. After a successful first term, we decided to make these classes part of a permanent fixture of our ‘Unexpected’ family. Little Lights will allow babies and toddlers to explore, investigate, socialise and discover, to aid their social and physical development for 0-1 years, 1-2 years and 2-3 years. Watching and interacting with their peers is a necessary part of 0-3 year olds development. Due to Covid, new parents have been isolated. Our Little Lights classes will provide a crucial service for parents to meet other parents and recover lost experiences during the past year and start to create vital networks of support.
