My name is Manoj Kumar Kandel, and I am the founder of a Play School (teaching method is Progressive leaning method) in Nepal, located center of the capital city of Kathmandu. Our school's mission is to enrich children's experience through the Montessori and Progressive Learning method, which allows them to be free and independent. We also believe that learning English and interacting with people from different cultures is very important at an early age, and this is why we offer this opportunity for young people to stay with us and introduce their culture and practice English with our children. At the same time, we hope our volunteers will also have great experiences in Nepal and learn a bit about our multi culture.
Right now we are total 5 staff. Among them 3 teacher are teach children as our program base, one manager manage all administration and account and one helper help to clean, cook for children. We can offer volunteer opportunities throughout the regular school year.
We look forward to hearing from you!
Babysitting and creative play
Creating/ Cooking family meals
Volunteers have the opportunity to get to know local Nepali teachers, parents and others. Me and my daughter want our volunteers to feel at home, and we enjoy helping volunteers explore the local area, Kathmandu, Bhakapur and Laitpur. More than 5 month long stay volunteer we will give opportunity to take visit Pokhara as well. We occasionally offer home-cooked meals or visits to interesting restaurants.
Me, my wife and my daughter who is taking care of our Play school and I always look forward to meeting and hosting enthusiastic, intelligent individuals who enjoy spending four to five hours each school day interacting with kindergarten-age (3 to 6 year old) children. Your main task will be to guide these children in their constructive play activities using native or advanced English to help them explore the world, and assist in other school programs under the direction of our English-speaking kindergarten teachers. Our volunteers preferably have had some experience, either professionally or personally working with small children. Knowledge of the Montessori method is a plus, but not required.
We offer comfortable accommodations -- a small studio flat/apartment / with private bath and kitchen/ that could be shared by two volunteers -- school breakfast and lunch and friendly, supportive English-speaking staff. We help our volunteers to become familiar with the local culture and how to get around and make new friends.
