VIN’s Early Childhood Development (ECD) Education Centers are set up in rural communities for children of 3 to 5 years of age. Our ECD centers provide learning & development opportunities for the children from the most marganilized / disadvanatged communities in Nepal, otherwise they would have no education. The children's centers operate with a friendly learning environment. You as a child care volunteer in early childhood development education center, will offer your love & care to the children and help develop physical, mental, emotional in the children.

As an ECD child care volunteer, your role at the early childhood development centers will be to play games, rhymes, songs with the children, create activities that encourage the development of the children's motor, social, and kinesthetic skills, assist teachers, educate the teachers on various issues such as basic health & hygiene and maybe even independently teach the children, giving the local teachers a chance to observe the way you interact with the kids and possibly help the teachers learn from your teaching methods. Being a early child care volunteer at an ECD is a hands-on and challenging experience that is sure to be rewarding. 

“After joining  VIN, I had the opportunity to participate in different types of training related to Early Childhood Education. I learned how to develop and use local materials.More importantly, I learned to teach early childhood aged children to know their feelings. Thank you VIN for such a rewarding opportunity”
