Project name: Kindergarten Zwergenland

Hosting organization: FAIRbund e.V. Kindergarten Zwergenland

Sending organization: “Common Sense” Youth Organization

Purpose of the project: 

The kindergarten was newly built in 2010. The architectural style with wood reflects the nature pedagogical concept. The kindergarten welcomes 90 children aged 3-6 years in 5 groups of 18 children. Children can use the 5 group rooms with nice relaxing areas on the second floor, a room for sports and other activities, an atelier and a children’s kitchen. Outside there is a nice area with trees, different play instruments, sand, places to sit and a big terrace which invites playing outside. Children can attend this kindergarten within their third year of life. The volunteer works normally from 8/9 am till 3 p.m. (6 hours). Since 2017 the kindergarten has the capacity to take a few children with special needs. This kindergarten is located on the same territory with another kindergarten for smaller kids, so they both create a big kids’ space with two gardens. The task of the volunteer is to support educators in their work and help children to explore the world via small activities.

Number of volunteers: 1 volunteer between 18-30 years old (Only Azerbaijani citizenship)

Normally all the volunteers live in shared flats: have their own room but share a kitchen and a bathroom with 3 other volunteers.
