Volunteers in the Day Care Center program in Peru get an opportunity to help, guide and play with children aged between six months to four years old. There are 8 to 16 kids per day care center. The majority of the children are between 1 and 2 years old. The oldest kids are learning how to spell and are doing other basic lessons in preparation for kindergarten.
Each centre has only one caregiver and very basic utilities (small old beds, old sheets and blankets, and few pillows). Therefore, the value of having volunteers in these centres is obviously great; it is even more obvious when taking into account that 25% of the children have single mothers, and 95% of them come from very difficult background situations.
As a volunteer you will be involved in the day to day care of the children and be involved with playing with the children, running many types of craft activities, teaching some English too or arranging creative activities such as drawing or arts and crafts.
Volunteers need to help these kids to develop their skills in order to be ready for kindergartens. The day care centers are open Monday to Friday from 08:30 A.M to 16:00 hours. At each center the kids have no real schedule-they come to the centers to play, eat and learn basic lessons.
This program offers you a chance to use your own creativity in a highly productive manner. Volunteers work for 4-5 hours/day divided in mornings and afternoons - 5 days a week (volunteers are reminded to remain flexible)
