Our Childcare programme in Surin gives you the unique opportunity to make a valuable contribution to the local community, and experience life in a typical Thai town.
With support from our team you will help to care for the young pre-school age children, teaching some basic English words along the way. The children who attend the childcare centre are all from local families who are all so grateful for the help, and the opportunity for their children to interact with native English speakers.
Day 1 – Arrival day. Meet your fellow travellers and our dedicated team, enjoy the sights and sounds of Bangkok.
Day 2 – Orientation and Bangkok Tour. A great day sightseeing and then spend an evening on the famous Khao San Road.
Day 3 – Transfer to Surin. You and your group will take the train to Surin. Taking around 8 hours it is an experience in itself. Sit back in the air conditioning and enjoy the journey. Be sure to take plenty of photos as you watch the Thai countryside go by.
Day 4 – 7 – The childcare experience begins. You will be picked up at a designated meeting point each morning and driven to the Childcare centre. A member of the team will help you settle in, plan some activities, and get you up and running. An average day would run from 8am to 3pm.
Day 8 – Free day. Time to relax, unwind and explore Surin. Our team will be happy to help you organise activities and let you know the best places to visit in Surin and the surrounding area.
If you are only staying one week, your return travel to Bangkok is not included, but our team will help you make arrangements. If you are staying for more than one week you will have the weekends to relax and explore.
