Kindergarten project of Xylokastro-Evrostini municipality

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Accreditation number: 2010-GR-7

Duration of the project: 6 months

Location:  Xylokastro-Evrostini Municipality, Corinthian region

The voluntary work takes place in the kindergarten of Municipality of Xylokastro-Evrostini which hosts children in between 2- 5 years old.  Our motivation to host EVS volunteers is the support and help in the every day work of the kindergarten. This includes helping in the fine-art workshop, painting lessons, theatrical workshop, playing games with the children, to take part in the workshop in the subject of tastes (sweet, salty, bitter and sour), join the trips, excursions, helping in the kitchen of the kindergarten and they will help once a week in the youth information office of Xylokastro. The volunteers will assist the staff in the daily childcare and organise his/her own small project depending on his/her skills and ideas (e.g. music, handicraft, theatre, games etc). A further important aspect of the project is to give the volunteer the opportunity to put into the practice his/her ideas and to reflect upon this with experienced staff of our school. We would like the volunteer to learn the way to protect the children of these vulnerable ages, to promote the European idea among the children as the future adults of Europe by giving them the chance to experience what it actually means.

We would like also to develop the volunteer’s responsibility, creativity, knowledge, and skills.

Our goal is to develop the international and intercultural understanding of the children, and thus we would like to give them the way of thinking from this early age when they can adopt new things easier that they can cooperate and communicate with people from other countries by overcoming language difficulties and cultural differences. In this way we can fight against racism, xenophobia and discrimination.

The volunteer will work every weekday (Monday to Friday) from 8:00 to 14:00.

The volunteer will take the breakfast and lunch in the kindergarten with the teachers and the children.
