Picture1The Childcare programme runs activities at childcare centres in local hilltribe villages, giving youngsters to chance to develop their learning skills, without concentrating on language.

Volunteers are instructed on methods of teaching, lesson planning, and how to enter the plans into our Lessonplanning Database. The database carries records of every lesson, and is of vital importance to the continuity of the curriculum and the progress of individual classes.

  • Length of stay: Minimum 2 weeks; Maximum 12 weeks
  • Fee: programme fees start from 11,000B; registration fee 7,000B
  • Requirements: National criminal record check; full health insurance; agreement to Terms & Conditions; registration payment; full payment in advance




Volunteers are needed on this project throughout the year, excluding holidays from March to April and during October. Volunteers can work alongside local teachers, to assist those running teaching activities, maintaining the classroom and helping with the children at mealtimes. Each volunteer is required to assist with resource development each afternoon, prior to assisting with a class the next day. Volunteers do not need to be qualified or experienced teachers to participate on this project.
