Kindergartens in Nairobi can host between 15 and 100 children at any one time and are often under-resourced with a genuine need for support. As a result, is a high demand for energetic volunteers who love children and can keep up with the lively atmosphere at these placements. The children love interacting with volunteers and will be sure to keep you on your feet!
Kindergarten volunteers in Nairobi can expect to help out with the day-to-day operations in a range of pre-schools, daycare centers and kindergartens. Each center caters to children of differing ages, however, you will typically work with children between 1 and 6 years-old.
You’ll help to teach basic English and Math, as well as assist with the general running of the center and daily chores such as cooking, cleaning, feeding, general care for children and babies and occasionally even helping with farm work.
This project is open to all volunteers - a background in childcare is not required as you will be working alongside local staff.
Please note, this project is not available during the school holidays. If you apply for the Childcare project during this time, you will be switched to either the Special Needs Care or Women’s Education projects.
