Trip Details

The most effective way to change the future is through the education of the children! Located in beautiful Kandy, this project gives you the opportunity to work with children between the ages of 3 and 5, at a variety of Kindergartens, who are enthusiastic and eager to learn.  Often providing free education to the children, the Kindergartens aim to improve the children’s future opportunities by developing their level of English. They are well organised and supervised by higher authorities. Participants will take an active role in the preparation and delivery of exciting and meaningful learning opportunities. Primarily, your duty will be to teach the children English but you could also be required to teach other subjects such as music, drama and foreign languages. As part of your role, you will be assisting the teaching staff at the school and occasionally creating teaching plans for the activities you’ll be delivering. Any methods you use to encourage the children to learn should be interactive and could include games, puzzles, songs, rhymes or any other media to help them to develop basic pronunciation and knowledge of key vocabulary and phrases.

Please Note: Projects start on a Monday, however you should arrive over the weekend on either Saturday or Sunday.
