Nursery School Playtime and Animal Care

Volunteering with us gives travelers a chance to experience Japanese nursery schools and to learn more about this aspect of Japanese culture. Also, you can do something meaningful in support of animal welfare in Japan. We hope to offer volunteers an interesting experience while in Japan, and a chance to make the community a better place. Our school programs foster international awareness and our animal programs foster positive relationships between humans and animals in the community.

We started our Kyoto program to help support animal welfare activities in Japan and to add international participation to our local schools. This is a win-win situation for both the community and the volunteers who join our program. We are positive people, with an aim of having a positive impact. We are vegan and veg friendly, but not exclusive.

I was nervous about being around so many children at first but we hit it off very well right from the beginning. I picked up on a lot of Japanese along the way and being in the program gave me a lot of motivation to keep on practicing. The kids and I had a lot of fun playing together and interacting with nature! All of the volunteers and program staff were very welcoming.

My time in Kyoto was great! Kyoto is an amazing city and I was able to be there during Sakura time. Regarding the job, it was an amazing opportunity to be part of the school, where you can really see how Japanese teachers work and how they educate the kids. It is an unique experience! The program coordinator, Amanda, was always fun and respectful. Regarding the house, it is a really old house and they have some issues (we had problems with dust mites, probably some bed bugs as well, and mouses). Regarding the food, unfortunately I have seen some expired itens being given to the volunteers.

It was my very first volunteer experience with worldpackers and I couldn't have hoped for a better one! Everyone involved in this program is just incredible and super nice and I felt really at home in this house with the great people that I lived with. Working in the nursery and the Kindergarten was a special experience that I'll cherish forever! Even though the language barrier might seem like a challenge sometimes, the kids prove that you don't need to speak the same language to play and have fun together, they were just awesome! Thank you for this amazing opportunity!

I had the most amazing time with Japan cat network! While volunteering at the nursery and the kindergarden, I got the opportunity to make new friends, experience the Japanese lifestyle and culture, interact with the kids and teachers as well as living in Kyoto during the Sakura season. The work itself is super easy and rewarding, and the house is 30min by bike to the city center, which allows you to explore every corner of it. I'll take this experience with me forever and definitely recommend it to everyone :) thank you so much for having me
