About the Program

Volunteers work approximately 5 hours a day in a public kindergarten or NGO-run after-school center for toddlers from some of Cape Town’s poorest townships. Volunteers work with the local teachers to introduce the children to basic concepts in topics like culture, geography, math and writing. They also promote good manners and behavior and the children’s positive development by dancing, making art and playing games or doing sports. Local teachers also rely on the volunteers to help provide individualized attention to children falling behind, and to supervise during recreation time.

Structure and Facilities

Vary according to location, resources and level of trained staff

You will be working with infant babies to 6 year old's – certain creches only accept children that are 3-6 years old

Typical day

    Usual working days go from 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM of which you have to work for approx. 5 hours and include the following activities.

    • Feeding, teaching and playing with children
    • Meal preparation
    • Making educational toys and learning aids


    Free-time activities

    Cape Town is one of Africa’s most popular tourist destinations for a reason. Its beaches, such as Camp’s Bay, are world renown, and Cape Town’s beachfront and downtown areas are lively at any time. During the day it is easy to find artisans selling their crafts or outdoor cafes to enjoy the Mediterranean climate. At night, there are many excellent bars, clubs and restaurants where locals and foreigners can relax and socialize.
    There are numerous cultural sites to visit, including the Bo-Kaap neighborhood and the Castle of Good Hope. They reflect Cape Town’s long history and help explain why the city is one of the most multicultural in the word. Robben Island, the infamous prison where political prisoners, including Nelson Mandela, were held during apartheid is a difficult but necessary stop. For outdoor lovers, Cape Town has a wide mix of opportunities. Table Mountain is a breathtaking spot to visit, and there are many nearby hills, mountains and trails that make for great biking, climbing and hiking. Many, like Lion’s Head Mountain, also offer stunning views over the city and ocean below. Join in on tours down the Garden Route and a Game Drive to spot the Big 5!
