Kinderwelt am Frauenberg for volunteers from Russia
Location: Nordhausen, Germany
Period: 25/06/2017 – 24/06/2018
Deadline: 30 May 2017
EVS in already approved project – kindergarden for 2-6 year old children near Leipzig, only for Russian residents!
“Kinderwelt am Frauenberg” is the biggest kindergarten in JugendSozialwerk, taking care for 235 children between 2-6 years. It works according the open work concept, which is aimed to teach children to act autonomously. Children can structure their daily routine almost independently, using different function rooms – construction/ doll/ theater room. Beside these activities we offer education activities in groups which all children should participate in (sport, art, mother tongue etc.).
The kindergarten attracks great importance to cooperation with parents trying to involve them in all activities (annual summer and Christmas party, parents-conferences, etc).
Volunteers will be integrated in all daily activities regarding to their interests and competences. At the beginning the volunteers will work closely together with the kindergarten teachers to get to know the different areas of kindergarten. Later on, they will work more and more independently.
During the work the volunteers will get an interesting insight into the social and cultural life of children. Volunteers will learn how to deal with different problems of children, e.g. difficult social background or personal difficulties.
During the “open-work-time” the volunteers have to take care for children and support them in any way. They are expected to display sensitivity, patience and creativity.
Volunteers will be involved in preparation of special events, like parent-teacher meetings, seasonal parties, open days, etc. They will also take part in all internal meetings and trainings to enrich their knowledge regarding the children work.
Volunteers can realize their own ideas to create new activities for the children, developing a regular workshop, where children can learn everything about volunteer’s country, language and traditions. Another possibility could be publishing a newspaper for parents together with the pre-school children. It can be also the creation of a simple website about our kindergarten and running a language or creativity course (regarding to the preferences of the volunteer).
