Kindergarten Volunteering Pokhara

If you love working with children, why not teach amidst the blue mountain ranges of Pohkara? This is a city which is as vibrant as it is, beautiful! Otherwise known as a gateway to the Annapurna Circuit – the home of  the majestic mountains of the same name, Pokhara offers its visitors adventure, beauty and culture. In fact, there’s so much to do here, that a week just isn’t enough. However, working as a Kindergarten Volunteer in Pokhara, you will have plenty of time to fit in as much as you can!

Work with Children in one of Nepal’s most Picturesque Cities!

Primarily, you will be supporting teachers in local kindergartens, helping them to prepare for classes, and adding your own creative flair to your lessons! Here you will help young children learn the basics of English through song and rhyme, and games, building their confidence as they go. As many children come from underprivileged families, they may need a little extra support. Therefore, we’d love our volunteers to be empathic, and, importantly, flexible enough to match the needs of these lovely little ones!

Explore the Beauty of Pokhara as a Kindergarten Volunteer

There is a lot to see here, from ancient temples and museums, to paragliding, paddle-boating and other adventure activities! In fact, whatever you’re looking for, you’ll likely find it in this understated city, with a wealth of treks, white-water rivers and hills to navigate on your time off! Alternatively, you can also hang back at your accommodation with friends, or head to one of the many restaurants in the city, offering a wide range of local and Western cuisine. In short, your stay as a Kindergarten Volunteer in Pokhara will be memorable for both you – and the children who will be lucky to have you teach them!

Although Nepal is small, it has the greatest latitudinal variation of any country. The land rises from the southern plains of the Terai, barely above sea level at 70 meters, to the top of the Mt. Everest, the highest peak on Earth at 8848 meters above sea level, in a distance of less than 200 km.

Book your volunteer travel  holiday and experience one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world as well as the highest mountain ranges. Nepal has lush valleys that team with exotic wildlife ready to be explored on your gap year adventure.  It is a beautiful country located in South Asia bordering both India and China.  As you enjoy your volunteer travel experience in Nepal you will come across many remote monasteries and villages that adorn the stunning landscape where you will experience the best of Nepal.  The outstanding beauty and friendly Nepalese people are the main reasons people book gap year holidays to Nepal and why they are a popular choice with us.   We have a compreshensive selection of gap year holidays in Nepal with a number of teaching and community programs on offer.
