Overview

Volunteer in local kindergartens in beautiful Ubud. Help and encourage children to learn and grow creatively, teaching language and communication skills and other primary skills. Over 15 kindergarten’s available. Teach children basic English in an informal and fun way!

Some of the centress offer free kindergarten education to several 4-5 year old children from poor villages. The local children are warm and affectionate and would rather spend time playing than learning! Kindergarten teaching in Bali like throughout the world is informal, and the children will want to play with you more than be ‘taught’ in a formal sense. However, just by getting them enthused about coming to school, giving them some very basic English phrases such as simple greetings, you will may well have sown the seeds of a lifelong learning habit and doing a great and enjoyable job in the process.

The children will all be excited to see you and exceptionally welcoming, due partly to the natural and genuine friendliness of the Balinese, but also the fact that you will be one of a few foreigners they have met!


Location

Ubud, pronounced ‘oobood’ is located centrally in the heart of Balinese culture. Far removed from the tourist crowds of Kuta, it is famous as an arts and crafts hub, and much of the town and nearby villages seems to consist of artists’ workshops and galleries and a general feeling of well being. Ubud is surrounded by most of the things that bring people to this unique destination – scenic rice fields, small villages, art and craft communities, ancient temples, palaces and rivers.
