Activity description

We are an open-minded team consisting of 10 teachers and social workers who deal with around 80 kids in pre-school age (between 2 and 6 years old). For us the thoughts and visions of Maria Montessori are the center of our educational conviction, mainly in reference to the idea of the child, the role of the teacher and the view on the world surrounding the child. In the Kindergarden there are many children with migration background and we have been working with Spanish native for nine years. As an integrational Kindergarden, we also deal with kids with physical and psychical disadvantages. tasks for the volunteer: The volunteer supports the workers in their daily routines with the kids and shall set up own small or bigger projects. https://villa-leipzig.de/european-solidarity-corps/hosting-volunteers/available-voluntary-place/esc-montessori-kindergarden-two-places
