We

are

looking

for

volunteers

to

help

us

realise

our

passion:

educating

young

children.

We

would

love

to

have

teachers-in-training,

graduates

or

retired

teachers

with

interest

or

experience

in

Montessori

education.

However, we also do consider volunteers without training but a passion for working with young children.

What

you

will

need

is

energy

and

patience.

What

we

can

offer

is

a

professional

working

environment

with

lots

of

development

potential.

You

can

get

involved

in

assisting

our

teachers

on-the-job,

curriculum

and

material development, IT training & support of teachers and assisting our after-school programme.

We

are

also

looking

for

volunteers

to

help

us

realise

various

projects

such

as

setting

up

afternoon

classes

in

English

and

Math

for

Grade

1-5

leaners

(age

6-12).

If

teaching

is

not

your

thing,

we

are

also

happy

to

have

volunteers

with

handy

skills

and

initiative,

to

assist

our

catering

activities

in

the

kitchen

or

who

can

help

us

to further develop our vegetable garden and playground.

If you can spend a few weeks or months with us, we would love to hear from you.

We

welcome

volunteers

of

all

ages

and

all

backgrounds.

Unlike

many

organisations,

we

don't

charge

volunteers.

However,

you

will

need

to

be

able

to

cover

your

living

costs

for

the

duration

of

your

time

with

us.

These will include accommodation and the cost of local transport, typically by taxi.

Get in touch with us to discuss dates and possibilities.
