As a Kindergarten Assistant you work with pre-school aged children (typically ages 4-5) in the kindergarten classrooms. Together with the teacher, you encourage learning through games and crafts. This work is especially rewarding since the kids are extremely friendly and open-minded. Kindergarten assistants work in the mornings, Monday to Friday from 7.30 am till noon. Friday's classes often end early.
This position is available from February to November. The minimum time commitment for this position is 6 weeks, and long term volunteers are always welcome. You should have an intermediate or better level of Spanish to be able to play and chat with the kids.
We provide inexpensive volunteer housing or can arrange for homestays if you prefer.
There are no fees charged to volunteer with La Esperanza Granada. You will have to pay your own cost of living and your own transport. We ask each volunteer to make a $20 contribution to help with administration costs. You are not required to do fund raising, though of course it is welcomed.
