Children Project (IDN-62)

Type: Education: Kindergarden - Country: Indonesia

Brief description and main aims

Education for children especially in early childhood is very important for their development. For families living in the city, the time to educate their children is quite impossible since the parents are busy with work. The Kindergarten curriculum is focused on the provision of educational stimulation to assist the growth and development of the mind and body so that the children are ready to enter further educational levels. Kindergarten hosts students from 4 to 7 years old.

Main Activities

The students are given lessons based on their level. The lessons lead to improving children’s creativity and raising their interest to learn through various approaches such as tact value, social, religious, emotional, physical, motoric, cognitive, language, art, and independence. All the lessons are designed in order to develop the student's intellectual abilities and role in society. These schools are located in the urban setting of some cities, such as Semarang, Salatiga, Kudus, Jepara etc.

Volunteer tasks

  • To give basic English lessons by organizing games and entertaining activities for children
