Overview icon


This local kindergarten can really use your help with the day to day tasks required to service local children from ages 3 to 6 years old. You will work at a well organized and nicely run kindergarten in one of the 4 classrooms available and assist the teaching staff. Most classes have between 10-15 children.

In the morning you will pick the kids up, play some games and maybe sing some songs in the school yard and then you will lead them to their classroom. Once they are settled in, you can engage with the children with different learning activities that may include teaching English and helping them practice writing in their notebooks. You can even use other creative and fun ways to help them learn basic tasks through songs, dance or games.

At lunchtime you will help with bringing out the food, helping the children and cleaning up the eating area. After the meal is complete, you will help put the children down for a nap.

The afternoon activities of fun and learning will begin at 14:00 once the children have awakened and will continue until the day is over at 17:00 when they are returned to their parents. Weather permitting, some of these activities may take place outside, so children have space to run and play.


  • Gain valuable experience caring for local kindergarten aged children
  • Gain insight into the local work ethic and culture, through interactions with local staff
  • Provide an extra set of hands and eyes to local teachers


Volunteer experiences have a direct and positive impact on local communities by injecting money into the local economy through the purchase of food, transportation, and tourism activities. Volunteering is a great way to give back to the comunity and make a difference in the world. Depending on the type of volunteer experience you are interested in, your time can be spent improving educational resources and opportunities, providing medical services to underserved communities, or promoting environmental conservation and sustainable farming techniques.
