nyh vabatahtlikteenistus ESC austria waldorf kindergartenNoored Ühiskonna Heaks(NYH) is promoting a call for volunteer for European Solidarity Corps placement called “Waldorf Kindergarten Villach” for 12 monthswhich will take place from September 2020 in Villach, Austria.



The Waldorfkindergarten Villach is beautifully located in Carinthia (Austria), close to the borders of Italy and Slovenia. It offers children at the age of 1.5 to 6 years the chance to experience a daily routine, focusing on learning by doing and living a holistic view of mankind. Overall there are four kindergarten groups with about 20 children each aged 3 to 6 years and two nursery groups for up to 15 infants aged 1 to 3 years. Every kindergarten group is led by two educationalists while the groups for the infants are led by three educationalists each. Extraordinary about this kindergarten is the anthroposophical influence. Keeping up with rituals and repeating daily rhythms gives certainty to the children. Furthermore, mechanical and artistic skills are highly valued and supported, following the Waldorf pedagogy. As a basic principle the children are playing in the garden every day. Another element of both kindergartens is the intense cooperation with parents.
