We are a family running a small Kindergarten school since 2012. It is located in the Lalitpur Disctict in Nepal. We take children from the age of 2 until 6 years, and the level we start is from Playgroup, Nursery, Lower Kindergarten, and Upper Kindergarten. Our school starts from 8:45 until 3:00 pm.
Our 6 years old son also visits our upper kindergarten class.
The teachers we employ teach our children also how to speak and write the English language.
We believe that intercultural exchange may help children to grow up open-minded. So we would like to invite you to stay with us in our house and participate at our everyday life and our culture and we invite you to share your experience with us.

Help in the house
We are looking for people who are very familiar with the English language and who are experienced in dealing with children.
Your main task will be to support our teachers preparing and holding the subject "arts and crafts". You work in a team but nonetheless independently, so that our staff may also profit from your experience and new ideas.
Your working time will be from Sunday till Friday from 09:00 a.m.-02:00 p.m. During this time you are free to prepare your own projects or to stay with the children. The rest of the day is yours.
Due to some difficulties to buy all needed materials in Nepal for arts and crafts we are using very simple materials as crayons, watercolors, cardpaper, kitepaper and recycled materials. The more we depend on your creativity!
You will have your own bedroom with Wi-Fi in our house (we live IN the kindergarten!). In the morning we serve typical Nepali milk tea and dhaal bhaat (rice with lentil-soup and seasonal vegetable curry) for breakfast and dinner. During the day you can take a snack with our teachers. To buy few little things, vegetables and fruits it takes a 10 minutes walk down the street.
When you arrive at the Kathmandu Airport we can pick you up with the car. Our kindergarten is situated in Lalitpur from where it takes you 45-60 minutes with the bus/micro van to Kathmandu Thamel (touristic center, 25 rupees one direction).
We have a lovely dog that stays outside and protects our house and loves to be caressed.
Please respect that we serve as examples for the children so please don't smoke, don't drink alcohol and don't use you cell phone in front of the children.
We don't charge for your accommodation but if you want to support us you can buy special material for you projects or make a contribution by buying special/additional fruits and vegetables you like to eat.
