Volunteering in early childhood


Dear Sir, dear Madam, I am a French early childhood educator for children from a few months to 7 years old. After completing my degree, I have worked more than 5 years in different structures. I have had the opportunity to work with a range of audiences (children, parents, professionals of the early childhood and children with disabilities). I am currently working as a civil servant in France as Facilitator in an early childhood information center. I have recently decided to take a year-long sabbatical starting January 2020 to discover other professional practices in the educational sector abroad. I am therefore looking for new job/volunteering opportunities in Europe (for a minimum of 3 weeks). I already found a volunteering in Switzerland for the month of January, and a kindergarten in Belgium is ready to welcome me in March. Currently, I am searching for more volunteer works in other countries in the period going from April to December 2020. I already have extensive experience of working abroad. I have worked in a day-care centre for young children in Canada, in a school for children with disabilities in India and in an orphanage in Ecuador. My goal was to experience new educational methods in different countries and therefore different cultures. I now wish to continue this experience in Europe. My goal this time is to gain a better understanding of the education system and cultural diversities in other European countries. I am a fast learner and I would be very happy to assist you with the daily operations of your structure (accompaniment of children, leading workshops, etc.). I would be able to bring my knowledge and experience of the French Education system for young children. I also believe my great interpersonal skills would allow me to fit in with your team very well. Thank you for considering my request. I look forward to discussing this opportunity with you further. Yours sincerely, Coline Bonis
