    Description

    My name is Helen, and I am the founder of the Montessori kindergarten in Fót, Hungary, located just 20 Km from the center of the capital city of Budapest. Our school's mission is to enrich children's experience through the Montessori 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 Hungary and learn a bit about our culture.

    My husband, Mark, 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 require volunteers to commit to spending at least six weeks with us, as young children need the time to become familiar and bond with new volunteers and interact with them comfortably.

    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.

    We can offer volunteer opportunities throughout the regular school year -- from early September to mid-December and from early January to mid-June -- and during our six-week summer program -- from mid-June to the end of July. Our school is closed in August.

    We look forward to hearing from you!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Volunteers have the opportunity to get to know local Hungarian teachers, parents and others. My husband and I want our volunteers to feel at home, and we enjoy helping volunteers explore the local area, Budapest (about 30 minutes by train) and other nearby areas. We occasionally offer home-cooked meals or visits to interesting restaurants.
