Tallin, Estonia – start October 2023 (8 months)

Type of offer: Volunteering
Coordinator:  ESTYES
Place: Tallin, Estonia
Period: 02/10/2023 – 16/06/2024



ESTYES is looking for a volunteer to support families in preparing children for school and to teach and develop children’s physical, mental and social skills.


Tallinna Kristiine Kindergarten values openness, creativity, tolerance, respect, caring and courage. The kindergarten has 12 classes for 1.5-7 year old children. The main activity is to teach children creatively trough play. The kindergarten is in a green district of the Estonian capital within walking distance or a short public transport trip from downtown. By including an international volunteer in our kindergarten, our goal is to improve together our main values through intercultural learning and get a fresh bystander view of our organization. At the same time, the volunteer can contribute with innovative ideas to engage with children, parents, teachers and the community. Here is an introductory video of the kindergarten from a few years ago!


The volunteer takes part and observes the activities each morning and has the opportunity to observe other classes too. In the early days, the volunteer has fewer tasks in the teaching process and later has the opportunity to plan a whole morning activity if he/she is willing. Afternoons are mostly free, but this can change due to events and weekly planning. The volunteer can participate in kindergarten events, which are planned in the beginning of the school year and are marked in the event plan which will be given at the beginning of the service. In addition, various trainings/classes are organized by the kindergarten for teachers and by teachers, which the volunteer can participate in. Also once a month, a teachers’ information session takes place, where an overview of upcoming events and important information is provided, the upcoming tasks are discussed, and the process of carrying out various projects is observed. Theme events with parents take place throughout the year, in which the volunteer can contribute to or organize them if he/she wishes. Few weekends may include events with parents or with teachers. The volunteer has the opportunity to help to improve implementation of projects like “Free of bullying”, “Eco schools” and “Health promotion”. Meetings with other volunteers nearby will be organized if possible. A volunteer can organize community events, such as an afternoon event for children and parents with other volunteers nearby (from other kindergartens, schools or youth centers). The main tasks of the volunteer will be:
– Contribute to daily kindergarten activities
– Enrich the children’s and staff worldview with your culture and language
– Add your vision in organizing events for children
– Participate in class field trips to explore Estonian culture and nature.
