This Kindergarten is located on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, next to an old landfill site.With the help of the donations, 3 classrooms and a playground for the kids were built to be in a safe place to play, eat, share and start their initial education. About 60 children in the age 3-5 attend everyday while their parents are working. The kindergarten is an educational center where the kids can develop both intellectually and emotionally. There is one professional teacher who trains the mothers and volunteers to carry on with the educational activities. The children also get breakfast and a warm lunch every day, and participate in different activities: artistic, music and sports.The breakfast and the afternoon snacks are fundamental for the children to get energy, as they do not always eat well at home. Besides the activities it is important that the children learn how to work as a group learn respect and solidarity. For the minimum time of 4 weeks, they are looking for Volunteers to assist teachers in Kindergarten (age 3-5 years).
