Most parents in Denmark work outside the home and therefore almost all children attend nurseries from age one to three and kindergartens from age three to six before they start school.

The kindergartens aim to provide the best possible care and at the same time help children develop themselves through games and educational activities. Most kindergartens are run by the municipality and provide lunch, as well as morning and afternoon snacks. Many of them are combined kindergartens and nurseries.

As a volunteer you will have a unique opportunity to become involved in many interesting pre-school activities and have a close interaction with the children. You will also learn about Danish childcare, the pedagogical work being done there and the philosophy on which it is based.

Volunteer tasks can include:

  • Helping staff in the daily work
  • Organizing games and other activities for the children
  • Helping with preparation of meals and assisting in excursions
  • Sharing your language and cultural background with the children
  • Introducing games from your home country to the children

Which tasks and responsibilities you will be given depend on your interests and skills. You will be working closely with one of the staff members, who will support and guide you.


  • All costs in connection with your participation in this program are included: such as food, accommodation, language education and orientation weekends. However, you will need to bring pocket money for your own spending. Denmark is an expensive country so it is recommended having a minimum of USD 170 per month.
  • You will be met by AFS on arrival to Copenhagen airport and be taken directly to the on-arrival orientation. On day 3 you will be helped to board the train to your local community where your host family will meet you at the train station.
  • You will be invited to mid-term orientation weekends with AFS which are held in April and November.
