Local Kindergarten Teaching

Kuching, Malaysia show on map

Agency | Global Nomadic

Teach alongside local staff and other volunteers in a Kindergarten during this flexible placement which is tailored according to your interests and abilities.

The project

This project works with several kindergartens schools in the Kuching area and allows you to encourage small children to learn and to grow by teaching them not only language and communication skills but also influencing them with new ideas which can help them flourish in the future. You will get a chance to work in local kindergartens in a fun and informal atmosphere! Focus will be more on playful interaction rather than formal teaching as the kids are aged 4 to 5 years old.
You will have an unforgettable and life-changing experience and you will make a valuable contribution to the local community.

The location

Malaysia is a beautiful country filled with contrasts - culturally and geographically diverse, with dynamic cities and peaceful beaches, authentic small villages and pristine rainforests. Essentially split between the mainland peninsula and the island of Borneo, Malaysia is incredibly ethnically and spiritually diverse with a combination of Malays, Chinese and Indians and indigenous groups practising many religions from Buddhism, Islam and Christianity to Hinduism and Taoism.

Typical day

Monday to Friday you will be teaching at the schools for 3 to 6 hours. You should expect to leave your accommodation between 8 and 9 in the morning and leave the school around 3 or 4 in the afternoon. A tasty lunch will be served at the school.

During school and public holidays you have the opportunity to take part in renovation work or special classes and English language camps organised by the local community.

During teaching hours, you can wear casual clothes however you should still respect local customs and not wear anything revealing.

***The schedule can be changed and/or amended depending on weather conditions, local conditions and unforeseen circumstances.***
