Rural Kindergartens seek the comprehensive development of children through activities of cognitive, motor, affective and social skills. The difference between a kindergarten in a city is that the rural Kindergartens often are run by mothers of the community (called "entertainers" or "promoters"). These “teachers” receive training and then are monitored regularly (ideally once a week) for lecturer (called "teacher coordinators"). In addition rural Kindergartens are formed on the basis of community participation.
Volunteers play the role of helping the “entertainers" or "promoters" to achieve the goals of the month. Usually there are up to 42 kids for just 1 entertainer or promoter.
Basic Information about the Program is as follows: -
--The children are aged between three and five years.
--There are an approximately of 30-40 kids in one classroom.
--Some centers are basic; there are old mini tables and chairs, educational games and teaching materials.
--The Kindergartens are located mostly in depressed areas.
--Kids are learning spelling and basic directions in order to be prepared for elementary schools.
--The main role of volunteers in this program is to help to the entertainers or promoters to check homework, check tests, distribute meals at break time, organize the activities for the next day, clean the classroom and decorate it.
