If you have an innate fondness for kids, then you'll absolutely love working at the daycare centers in Cusco. Volunteers opting for the Day Care Center Program will get an opportunity to help, guide and play with children aged between 6 months to 4 years old. The majority of the children are, however, between 1 and 2 years old. The oldest kids are learning how to spell and are doing other basic lessons in preparation for kindergarten admission.

Each center has only one caregiver and very basic utilities (small old beds, old sheets and blankets, and few pillows). Therefore, the value of having volunteers in these centers is obviously great; it is even more obvious when taking into account that 25% of the children have single mothers, and 95% of them come from very difficult backgrounds.

As a volunteer, you will be involved in the day to day care of the children, playing with them, teaching some English lessons too or arranging creative activities such as drawing or arts and crafts.

Volunteers need to help these kids to develop their skills in order to be ready for kindergartens. The day care centers are open on Mondays to Fridays, from 08:30 AM to 04:00 PM. At each center, the kids have no real schedule - they come to the centers to play, eat and learn basic lessons.

This program offers you a chance to use your own creativity in a highly productive manner. Volunteers work for 4-5 hours/day, either during mornings or at afternoons - 5 days a week (volunteers are reminded to remain flexible, always, with their working hours).
