Childcare Worker in South Africa
Volunteering in the Childcare sector involves working with children between the ages of 0-6yrs, in various crèches, day-care centers and kindergartens in Cape Town city and its surrounding local communities. With minimal monthly fees being charged to parents, and little help from the government, funding is always a problem and these facilities are often under-staffed and operate with extremely limited resources (food, books, stationery, educational toys, etc.)! The care of children, of this age group, also requires a lot of individual attention and it is for this reason that volunteer help is truly valued and appreciated.
