Buchkita Kindergarden

Buchkita Kindergarden

Leipzig, Germany

1 , Closed

Project description

The “BuchKindergarten” (BookKindergarten) is situated in the Southwest of Leipzig in the quarter called Lindenau. The concept of the kindergarten is based on many years of cultural and pedagogical experiences with ”book-work” with children. The volunteer will be working together with the educationalists, supporting their daily work with very small children starting from 0 year. Apart from helping children to explore the world, he/she will have an opportunity to develop their own interesting projects and activities for children.


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.


Training during the project

We will help you to find a German language course which fits your needs and level.
