 social learning by dealing with the support of the children´s needs and by realizing how to react on children in different life and emotional stages;
 personal development inside a team;
 playing an active role in preparing and leading projects with children;
 help the children with their daily routines

A typical day at the Kindergruppe Farbklecks looks like this:
8:00
The day begins. One teacher is present. The 14 children enter between 8 and 10 p.m. Making handicrafts and reading books are very popular activities during the morning session.
9:30
You should enter Farbklecks and get prepared for joint care (such as supporting the children in their daily needs). At 9:45 the second teacher will join the team.
10:00 breakfast
After breakfast the group will go outside for special activities, returning before lunch. A common interactive circle will draw attention to the solidarity and joy between the children and the staff.
13:00
After lunch there is a smooth time where the children can play freely or join calming activities. In the afternoon the group will get smaller again and the second teacher will leave. At this stage one parent will join the group and a joint decision will be made for the following program. This could for example be going to a park.
16:00
The Farbklecks closes.
As a volunteer, you will work about 30 hours per week. Your main role is to take care of the children in their daily environment.

Accomodation and food

You will be provided with a ticket for the public transport in Vienna. You will receive pocket money and a monthly food allowance. You will stay in a single room at a flat or student dorm, sharing facilities like kitchen and bathroom with others.

Project hosted by

Farbklecks is a non-profit organization located in the 18th Viennese district. Our focus lies on intercultural education. The Farbklecks children's group is organized and run by parents with two teachers. Our target group are parents and their children who support our pedagogical aims as well as the day centre on a voluntary basis. The group consists of up to 14 children between the age of 2 and 6. The different ages of the children should empower the social learning aspects of younger from older children and vice versa. As a volunteer, you will support the teachers in the daily activities with the children. Tasks can be supporting the preparing and leading activities for and with the children, helping with the daily routines (cooking, dressing of kids, assisting excursions, preparing lunch, etc.) You are asked to bring in your own personal skills, knowledge, and cultural background in the activities with the kids.
