Township Nursery School

This project is a registered non-profit organization that realised the need for better quality care for babies,
toddlers and pre-schoolers in the townships and disadvantaged communities. They offer training to unemployed women, nursery school workers and community workers in childcare skills, such as child development and stimulation.
Your volunteering time will be spent at one of their many nursery schools in Nomzamo, Strand. Operating since 2006 they take care of about 1800 children, aged 7 months – 6years every year. The children get 3 meals per day, which means not all the staff assist with the children, as some have to perform kitchen duties. All kinds of volunteer support is needed. You could be an assistant teacher in the 4 – 6 year old group, or look after the babies if that is your preference.
