Gather experience

Voluntary service and internship at
Kinderwelt Hamburg e.V.

You want to make a difference? You want to know if you like working with children?
Send us your application!

Kinderwelt Hamburg e. V. is a charitable kindergarten organisation. You can also do a state-approved voluntary service or an internship with us. 

We work differently than many other childcare providers. With us you get to know the concept of the open pedagogy of mindfulness.

In our kindergartens there are no fixed group rooms, but experience rooms such as ateliers, moving and role-playing spaces. In our pedagogical work we focus on the needs and wishes of the children. We take their opinions seriously and involve them in shaping their everyday lives. 

English-speaking pedagogues also work in every day care centre, so the children experience everyday life in two languages as a matter of course. Environmental protection and healthy nutrition are very important to us. Our food comes 100% from controlled organic farming, and we cook by ourselves.

You want to shape the future?

If you would like to play an active role in shaping society and take responsibility for the future of our children, apply to us!
