San Gabriel is a kinder garden in one of the neighborhoods of Cusco where people live that donīt have many economic possibilities. A local organization has started the kinder garden a few years ago with the goal to offer good education to the children, prepare them for primary school and teach the children social interactions with other children.
The kinder garden now has 3 classrooms where a total of about 70 children aged 3 – 5 years old receive education. There is a class for the 3 year olds, one for the 4 year olds and a classroom for the 5 year olds. After they finish in the kinder garden the kids go to a primary school. All children in the kinder garden live in the neighborhood where the school is located.
As a volunteer you help the teacher with the daily activities. In vacation periods there is also space for you to set up and do your own activities with the children. Sometimes kids have difficulties to keep up with the speed of the group; in this case the help of volunteers is very welcome! Of course the children are very happy with the extra attention they get from the volunteers!
