Kindergarten Wilde Hummeln

Kindergarten Wilde Hummeln

Leipzig, Germany

1 , Closed

Project description

Wilde Hummeln is located in the area of the kindergarten Zwergenland of FAIRbund e.V. The complete ground is 7000 square meters and the building was renovated in 2012. There are in total 76 children: 44 children aged 1-3 and 32 children aged 3-6 years. The groups are mixed in ages and children are aged 1 till getting to school. The kindergarten is working with an open pedagogical concept, so children are free to decide themselves to play in the garden or to build something or to dress up and play roles in the theater room. Once every two weeks the kindergarten offers a forest day and once a week children can bake a cake for the whole kindergarten in the children kitchen, as well children can do sport and music, so they develop holistically. This kindergarten is also a language kindergarten. Children can get a special assistance while learning their mother tongue. There are also a café for parents and a family center made in cooperation with the kindergarten Zwergenland.


Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

Normally all the volunteers are living in shared flats, have their own room - but share kitchen and bathroom with 3 others volunteers. Food money will be paid out to you as well as money to buy the local transportation monthly ticket or you just buy a bike. Leipzig is a very nice city to ride a bike. If you wish we can as well try to organize a host family.
