Bookskindergarden - working with small children (6 months)

Buchkita Kindergarten

Leipzig, Germany

1 , Closed

Project description

The “BuchKindergarten” (Bookskindergarten) is situated in the Southwest of Leipzig - neighbourhood Lindenau. The volunteer will work with children in the age from 1 to 3. 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 educators, supporting their daily work with small children. Apart from helping children to explore the world, he/she will have an opportunity to develop their own interesting projects and activities for children. In the kindergarten two other volunteers are working and the whole team consists of young and creative people. There are two other European volunteers in the kindergarten.


Accommodation, food and transport arrangements

The volunteer will live in a shared flat with other volunteers having his/her own room but sharing the kitchen and the bathroom. The flats are 2-4 rooms apartments. We will help you to open a banking account in Germany if needed. Monthly allowance (food and pocket money) will be paid out to you as well as money to buy the local transportation monthly ticket or you can just buy a bike and save money for the ticket. Leipzig is a very nice city to ride a bike.


Training during the project

We will help you find a German language course which fits your needs and level. You will attend as well two seminars organized by the German National Agency. You will have a personal mentor with whom you can discuss your ideas or difficulties. Each month we will have a monthly meeting together with 15 other volunteers active in the projects coordinated by us and discuss the issues related to the projects and other matters.
