EVS in Italy


I am a volunteer in Italy within the European voluntary service programme  . My host organization is Alce Nero and one of my tasks is to attend kindergarten in Bankole, a quiet area with many beautiful houses and neat gardens. Every day for a month and a half I worked with Matthias - my colleague. Our job is to take care of 30 children whose parents are unable to take them from kindergarten at 15:30 when classes end. The municipality of Porto Mantovano organizes the so called  "Doposcuola", which is a service that allows children to stay another two and a half hours in the nursery. Children from two schools between the ages of 3 and 5 years can  benefit from this service.

A group of 30 children requires two teachers. I was impressed by the organization and discipline of the children. The teachers are tough but fair and at the same time are very affectionate towards children, which in turn are relatively docile and well organized for their age. I am very glad that I had the opportunity to work with Matthias because he has a good approach to children. He manages to organize them, he is  able to provoke them so that they overcome their fears, he manages to intrigue them and grab their attention. I am very happy working with him and this experience is very useful for me. In the beginning I had some difficulties to understand what the children say, because they do not pronounce all words correctly. Little by little I overcome this problem. The experience gained was useful and interesting for me both linguistically and in personal and professional terms.
