Tallinn Kullerkupu Kindergarten is located in Tallinn, the capital of Estonia on the coast of Baltic Sea. At present, our kindergarten consists of four groups, each group of 24 children. Groups are organised by ages, we have groups for 3-4 years old, 4-5 years old, 5-6 years old and 6-7 years old children.

Our priority is learning outdoors. We have a nice outdoor area. We have joined the project “Temptation for free kindergarten.” In addition to the daily learning activities taking place in kindergarten, we also have music and sports. The main purpose of our organisation is high quality basic education for children. Our mission is to welcome every child in our friendly family and to provide pleasant conditions for a child to contribute the development of their
personality. It is important for us to know that every child would feel welcome, safe and positive among us throughout the day and would be happy taking part in everyday learning activities. In order to succeed in our mission we hold important to communicate and cooperate with the child’s family. We also cooperate with other organisations, such as different theatre groups, our district government, etc.

There are 17 people working in our kindergarten and 12 of us have the BS degree of education. They teach and take care of children aged 3-7. All of our teachers have pedagogical education. In addition to the long experience of working in kindergarten. For us it is important to cooperation with the family , thus leading teachers annually through the development of conversations with parents to provide feedback on the child’s development. The teachers are open-minded and want to extend their knowledge by getting to know people of different cultures and nations. Also, for our organisation the culture and customs of our own nation is of great importance.

The typical tasks for the volunteer would be helping teachers in everyday indoor and outdoor activities and participating in learning activities. The volunteer will join in our visits to museums, art exhibitions, sports events, outings. He/she will introduce his/her country, nation and cultural traditions to our children, parents and personnel (e.g. easy games and dances for children, national food). The volunteer will participate in our traditional kindergarten events
and folk calendar celebrations. For the volunteer it should be a good opportunity to learn and practice Estonian language and culture.
