During your time at this program, you will be working with small children (ages around 3 to 6 years old) at local kindergartens spread around the Gatanga area.

Each class at the kindergarten is quite packed, with an average of 30 children per classroom! So the extra hands are certainly appreciated by the local staff.

You will work together with local teachers and assist them while they manage their class. But you will have the opportunity to lead groups and create your own activities such as drawing, coloring, games, etc. Get creative!

Having said that, your main aim should be to practice English with the children. Even though the language is widely taught in Kenya, the chance to practice it is important in order for it to stick with them, which does not happen a lot in Kenya’s rural areas.

The chance to get the most out of speaking proper English is a skill that will prove invaluable for them later on in life!
