Come and help at our day care centre, where you will be welcomed with open arms by the children and community. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:

This hugely rewarding experience will fully immerse you into the local Balinese culture, where you will interact with the locals and get to know their traditions and lifestyle.

Our day care centre is located in the small but beautiful fishing village of Tianyar, in North East Bali. You will be staying and working on the shores of the Bali Sea, far away from the chaos of the urban development and explosion of tourism that other areas have seen in recent years.

The kindergarten was founded by our local team and is run solely on funds from volunteers and the local community. There is no better way of contributing to the village, than by playing and teaching within this amazing centre.

You, along with other volunteers play a crucial role in interacting with the children, keeping them entertained and happy, while building their confidence and teaching them basic English and life skills. The children are an absolute joy to work with, as their enthusiasm for learning is bound to make you smile!

Typical day

With 60 children attending everyday, aged from 3 – 6 years old, you can be sure that there are plenty of things to do to keep you busy. Some activities you may find yourself doing include:

  • Assisting local staff with teaching basic English, such as the alphabet, numbers, poems etc…
  • Play and interact with the children to ensure they are happy
  • Give them lots of love and affection to build their confidence
  • Help to prepare and give the children their food
  • Create a lively and enjoyable environment
  • Get creative with arts & crafts, music, games and more
  • Help with other duties around the centre
