Kindergarten Zwergenland

Kindergarten Zwergenland

Leipzig, Germany

1 , Open

Project description

The kindergarten "Zwergenland" is situated at the border of the river "Weiße Elster" in the family friendly part of Leipzig named Plagwitz. The kindergarten Zwergenland was newly built in 2010. Already the architectural stile with wood - reflects our nature pedagogical concept. The kindergarten welcomes 90 children aged 3-6 years in 5 groups of 18 children. The children can use the 5 group rooms with nice relaxing areas on the second floor, a room for sports and other activities, an atelier and a children kitchen. Outside there is a nice area with old trees, different play instruments, sand, different places to seat and a big terrasse which invites to play outside. Children can start in this kindergarten within their third year of life. The opening hours are from 7-17. Since 2017 the kindergarten has the capacity to take as well children with special needs. The kindergarten Zwergenland belongs to FAIRbund e.V.


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.
