South Africa: Cape Town

Program Summary

Volunteers are needed to help at creches and day care centres within local communities just outside Cape Town, South Africa. This is a fantastic opportunity to help local staff encourage children to enjoy being in an educational environment and give them a head start when they join schools.

The creches and centres provide an environment where the children are safe, supported, well cared for, given nutritious meals and learning opportunities as well as providing positive role models for the children.

Each child receives support from the staff at the centre and interaction with other children which creates a positive environment for them to learn and grow in.

Each day will differ but volunteer tasks may include assisting with:

* reading to the children
* supervising and interacting during play time
* helping with music and art activities
* provide one-to-one attention to specific children
* help feeding and clearing up during lunchtime
* supervise nap time
* help with sports ...
