  • Description


    We are the first English-speaking kindergarten dedicated to nurturing bilingual children from non-English speaking families, aiming to provide them with better opportunities for their future lives 🚀🌟.

    In 2012, Peru ranked last among the 65 countries participating in the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), which tested the educational skills of 15-year-olds worldwide. By 2015, Peru made slight progress, ranking 63rd out of 69 nations. However, this remains a critical issue for Peruvian students, with only students from the Dominican Republic faring worse in Latin America 😔.

    These results stem not just from secondary education but also from inadequate early education, which fails to equip children with the necessary tools to build self-esteem and improve academic performance. At our school, we strive to elevate standards and provide children with the invaluable gift of a foreign language—specifically English 🌍. Why? English not only enriches children's lives by presenting opportunities but also fosters self-esteem and parental pride, inspiring continuous improvement. This impact will reverberate through society, expanding and growing with time 🌈.

    Our vision goes beyond the city limits. We have already organized summer lessons for children in an Andean community, bringing these benefits to those who have never had such opportunities before. Our unique teaching method for pre-reader children revolutionizes the way knowledge is imparted to those under 7 years old 📚.

    We invite you to be a part of this ambitious project, working with the most delightful and precious age group of children. Our method is playful and interactive, so you'll be engaging with the kids in a fun and meaningful way 🤗. You'll enjoy the time spent caring for these little angels, cherishing the laughter and unforgettable moments that come with helping them learn and grow 💖👼.

    Don't hesitate—join us in this exhilarating project!

    You can support us in daily routines, assist teachers in classes, and help with activities and projects. We require volunteers to commit to at least 1 MONTHS or more to understand the work and adapt to the routine. In return, we offer accommodation and two meals per working day 🏠🍽️.

    We have specific enrollment dates and offer four spots every two months. Recruitment takes place on the last and first days of each month 📆🌻🎉. However, please feel free to consult with us, as we often have spaces available throughout the year as well 😊👍.

    We humbly request that you kindly take note of a few requirements that we have for all our esteemed members 🙏✨.

    As we are blessed to work with the precious little ones, we kindly ask that you provide us with the following documents, so that we may continue to ensure the utmost safety and security for our little angels 👼:

    1️⃣ A Criminal Record Check, to help us maintain a safe and secure environment for our cherished little ones 🛡️.
    2️⃣ Your travel insurance number, which can be provided just a few short days prior to your arrival, so that we may rest easy knowing that you are well-protected 🌍🚑.
    3️⃣ An emergency telephone number for your nearest and dearest, so that we may contact them in the event of any unforeseen circumstances 📞❤️.
    4️⃣ And last but not least, your WhatsApp number, so that we may continue to keep you updated on all the magical moments that your little ones will experience during their time with us 📲🌟.

    If you are unable to locate any of these requirements, please do not hesitate to contact us so that we may work together to find a solution that is both enchanting and delightful 🌈🌠.

    We truly hope that we may have the honor of seeing you soon, so that you may share in the magic that we strive to create every day 🤗✨.
