We are a not for profit International Primary School in Koh Tao, Thailand. Our kids are from 0 to 10 years old and they are delightful!
We are situated on the island of Koh Tao in Thailand, in an area called Sairee, Jitsin Village in a jungle environment, but 10 minutes from the beach! It is a wonderful place to work, we are very much a family and love having new people to meet.
Babysitting and creative play
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
All of our children are a mix of Thai, Burmese and local expat families. Our staff are also made up of Thai, European and Burmese backgrounds. You will be exposed to Thai language classes, Thai Dancing, Thai and Burmese cooking and general island family life! You are able to work your hours around dive courses and other fun activities the island has to offer.
We are looking for people who are skilled in any of the following:
People who are happy to assist at playtimes to watch the children while teachers break and also to help the teachers in the classrooms. We often have a few different levels in one class, so it is good to have someone that can assist a teacher with one group while she explains or helps another group. The children also go to Yoga and Swimming, we like to have extra eyes while these activities take place!
We have a volunteer house, purely for volunteers to live in for free while they work with us and it is a minute walk from the school, 10 minutes to the beach. You are close to local restaurants, shops and nightlife!
We offer documentation for a Volunteer Visa for 1-6 months for successful applicants.
The Volunteer house has fans only, 2 bunkbeds for 4 people at a time, a nice bathroom with flushing toilet and hot shower and a basic kitchen.
Quiet and safe neighbourhood and I live across the road if you need any help or assistance.
Lunch and snacks are supplied 5 days a week.
Taking time off, or changing working hours and days is no problem. We are very flexible and happy to work around you as long as it works for both of us. We understand it is important for volunteers to enjoy the island while they are here and they may sometimes like to do a whole day and take the next day off. We are very easy!

Can host families
More than two
Maximum 4 hours a day, 5 days a week
In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteer‘s stay. (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.
