Nursery School

Volunteer in Peru and take care of children !

Nursery schools in Cusco and the surrounding villages care for children from disadvantaged families. Each school has about 35 children aged 3 to 5 years and offers them a welcoming and safe place, while their parents work hard to earn a living.

As a volunteer, you will discover a different side of Peru, off the beaten track and you will have direct contact with the local population. All nursery placements are located less than 45 minutes from the Language school by bus. You work in the mornings, from Monday to Friday. You will be free to explore Cusco at the weekend or travel around the country.
These schools receive little financial aid and you'll have to use your imagination to invent games and fun activities for children because there are few materials available. Besides the lack of materials (pens, notebooks, crayons etc.), children need attention and affection.
