Kita LIFE is a day care centre for for babies, toddlers and kindergarden children (3 months up to 6 years) at two different locations in Küsnacht. The children spend their day time here, while the parents are at work.
They use the pedagogical concept of Montessori as their guidelines and offer a bilingual day care (German and English). One day a week they spend inthe nearby forest. On the other days the children play on the different playgrounds in the area, in the garden or can develop their creativity in the artist’s workshop.
The volunteer has the chance to work in all parts of Kita LIFE. The most important task is to assist the professional caregivers in taking care of the children. This includes to bring in own ideas for activities for the children and assist in the organisation and implementation of the daily programme and routine.
The volunteer has the chance to learn more about the pedagogical concept of Montessori and assists in the different team meetings in order to learn as much as possible about the work in a Montessori day care centre for young children. Next to the work with the children the volunteer takes part in different household tasks such as cleaning or cooking.
