Child Care in Bali

Bali is blessed with tropical shores, lush landscapes and some of the friendliest locals you will ever encounter. It’s laid back way of life is infectious and, despite it’s popularity as a travel destination this exotic island manages to retain all of it’s traditional Asian charm. Set in Bali’s bustling cultural capital, Ubud, this child care project is a fantastic way to experience all that the country has to offer whilst supporting the local community in a positive and sustainable way.

Many families in Bali cannot afford a good standard of education for their children, particularly those from disadvantaged communities that work off the land as farmers or fisherman, despite this Balinese children have a huge thirst for knowledge and are eager meet and learn from new people. Through this project you will therefore have the unique and rewarding opportunity to inspire a new generation of Bali’s children and sow the seeds from which they can benefit for years to come! 

Your Child Care Project in Bali
As a child care volunteer in Bali you will be working alongside friendly, local staff to provide much needed support and care at a local kindergarten. The kindergarten was established in order to provide free education to children from poor communities between the ages of 4-5, allowing them to grow and learn in a positive and stimulating environment. As well as providing children with access to a decent education, the work of the kindergarten also allows parents with young children the chance to gain work during the day in order to provide for their family. 

The children are incredibly welcoming and excited to play and learn, which is due in part to the typically friendly Balinese culture and also to their love of being at the kindergarten. For this project it is important that you enjoy working with children and understand their behaviour as the children have bundles of energy and will be very excited to meet you! 

Your Child Care Project Role
This project gives you the chance to encourage children to learn and grow creatively in a friendly and informal environment. The daily structure of the kindergarten is very relaxed and at such a young age the children are less interested in formally learning and engage more through games and play. Getting the children enthused about coming to school and learning through play is the focus of this project and you will have the chance to teach them basic skills through outdoor activities, crafts and song! 

Furthermore as a Western volunteer you possess language and communication skills that can be extremely beneficial to the children at this age and by providing them with some very basic English phrases, such as simple greetings, you will help to sow the seeds of the English language which they can take through with them to school.

Your Cultural Immersion – Your 1st Week
Your first week will consist of our Bali Cultural Immersion week, which will enlighten you to all the incredible cultural norms that you will encounter during your time on the island. This is an action packed week full of awesome activities, such as cultural excursions to learn about the Balinese culture, as well as adventure activities to show you the lighter side of life on this majestic island. For more info check out the Extra Info tab!

Indonesia Indonesia Indonesia

Where is Indonesia
The islands of Indonesia stretch over five thousand miles along the equator in the middle of Indian and Pacific Ocean, located just South of Malaysia and the Philippines. Indonesia is the world’s largest archipelago and sits in the divide between the Asian and continental plates, resulting in a stunning variety of natural environments. 

Indonesia’s Climate
Indonesia is a tropical country that sits along the equator meaning that the temperature stays very similar throughout the year, with pleasant day temperatures usually between 20 to 35 degrees Celsius. Between December and March the days are usually sunny with an outbreak of heavy showers throughout the night and high humidity. From June to September the humidity is generally low and it can often get quite cool in the evenings. Some areas higher in the mountains such as Ubud experience their own micro climate in where it is often cloudy throughout the year and can become quite chilly. 

Language in Indonesia
Indonesian (Bahasa Indonesia) is the official language of Indonesia. It is a standardized register of Malay, an Austronesian language which has been used as a lingua franca in the Indonesian archipelago for centuries. Formal education and national media is conducted in Indonesian. Most Indonesians are often fluent in other regional languages that are only used in the home or local community such as Javanese, Sundanese and Madurese. 

The People of Indonesia
The people of Indonesia have an extremely positive outlook on life and demonstrate great generosity and kindness in their day to day lives. This can be experienced through their colourful street parties where spirits are always high and there is a real feeling of community involvement. Indonesians tend to be friendly and welcoming so it is worth making the effort to speak to the locals throughout your travels.

Travel in Indonesia
The three most popular islands in Indonesia are Bali, Sumatra and Java. It is easy to see why as each island contains national parks which are ripe with volcanoes, mountain ranges, jungles and flora and fauna that can be found nowhere else in the world.

Bali
The most famous of the Indonesian islands is the exotic Bali, where you can experience beaches, surfing and diving in some of the worlds most spectacular natural landscapes. Bali is packed to the brim with cultural celebrations, colourful dance and traditional art forms such as painting, wood carving, and 

Sumatra
Sumatra is situated in western Indonesia and is far less crowded than it’s neighboring islands, If you want to chill out and soak up the exotic scenery then Sumatra is the place for you! There is a huge array of fauna and flora on the island making it the perfect destination for eco-tourism.

Java
Java is the world’s most populous island in the world, inhabiting over 135 million people. Boasting beautiful and serene countryside views, as well as the impressive Mount Bromo with it’s high peaks, constant smoke and volcanic sand. You will also find traditional Indonesian shadow puppet dances in central Java and the craftwork centre of Yogyakarta. The vibrant city of Jakarta in the East of the island is the cultural and international hub of Indonesia and the economic centre of the country.
  
Gap Year and Career Breaks in Indonesia
Come to Indonesia on your gap year or career break and experience a country with endless charm, charisma and excitement. With a huge array of cultural and natural diversity there is so much to explore, learn and experience on the trip of a lifetime.

Some people find the concept of paying to volunteer a bit strange. The truth is you don’t actually pay for your volunteer placement. That part is free. Your money goes on all the other benefits around it.
 
Project Assessment
Before you see a placement on our website, a lot of background work has gone on. We have met with local organisations, vetted in-country staff, conducted rigorous safety assessments and thoroughly evaluated the benefits of the placement, both for you and the community. Only then do you get to see the placement on our website and book your place, safe in the knowledge that it is well-structured and beneficial to the local community.
 
Help Choosing Your Placement
If you are not sure which placement or country to choose, our hugely informative Travel Advisors are here to help. They are a friendly bunch, have all travelled extensively and can offer lots of advice on choosing the right placement for you. This makes the task of deciding to volunteer in a foreign country much less intimidating, and far more exciting.
 
Pre-departure Advice
Once you have booked your placement, you will be assigned a dedicated Travel Advisor to offer essential pre-departure advice on vaccinations, visas, kit lists and more. They will also be on call to answer those important last minute questions like “how many pairs of socks do I need?” and “can I take my mobile phone with me?”
 
Help with Flights and Insurance
We do not include flights and travel insurance in our placement fee. This avoids us having to pass on unnecessary admin charges to you. It also gives you flexibility to plan any further travel before or after your volunteer placement. We do, however, offer lots of help on this through our leading flights and insurance partners, providing you with an easy booking facility and the best prices around.
 
Airport Pick-Up
Landing in a foreign country for the first time can be daunting. This is why we ensure our in-country staff are there to meet you on arrival. There’s nothing like seeing a friendly face when you walk out of a new airport. And once we have given you a warm welcome, the in-country staff will take you back to your accommodation where you can meet the rest of the team and other volunteers.
 
Arrival Orientation
We will take you through a local orientation and placement induction on arrival. This will introduce you to any useful amenities and local customs, and it will also show you how to stay safe while volunteering abroad. Our team also have lots of handy travel tips and advice if you are thinking of exploring the country in your spare time.
 
Accommodation and Food
Accommodation is included in all of our placements. Our volunteer houses, family home-stays and shared residences are comfortable and very sociable places to live while overseas. In some destinations, you may be able to upgrade to alternative accommodation. Just contact us for details. We endeavour to supply food on all of our placements, however in some cases this is not always possible. In many cases you will receive at least 1 meal a day, please see the project summary for further details.  
 
In-Country Staff
Your safety and enjoyment is extremely important to us. That’s why we have dedicated in-country teams to look after you throughout your placement. Our staff live nearby, can be reached 24-hours a day and will check-in with you throughout your placement to ensure everything is running smoothly, and you are happy in your new environment.
 
24-Hour Emergency Support
In addition to our in-country staff, you will benefit from our international support network. You will be given emergency contact details before you leave which you can call in the event of a crisis. We are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
 
Ongoing Project Support
For every volunteer who travels with us, we make a donation to support the work you do in-country. This donation funds future initiatives in the countries and supports the local community, ensuring that those living in disadvantaged communities also have opportunities to develop.
 
Recruiting More Volunteers
In order to provide a reliable flow of volunteers to our placements overseas, we have to spend a chunk of money on recruiting people like you. Our projects simply wouldn’t survive if we didn’t. It costs to maintain a website, an office, phone lines and a team of dedicated Travel Advisors to answer all your questions!  
Getting There Getting There Getting There

There are quite a few things to consider and to organise before you travel to your chosen destination to take part in your placement, trip or tour. 

Flights and insurance are not included on your placement which means you will have to arrange them before you leave. But don't panic this can be simpler than you may think! To make life much easier for you, we offer a free, personal booking service through our chosen flights and insurance partner – STA Travel. They will guide you every step of the way. If you would like to talk with one of our STA Travel advisors to get a quote then either call them on +44 (0)333 321 3102 or email changingworlds@statravel.co.uk

In many cases your chosen destination country will have requirements with with regards to visas, which will depend on the purpose of your visit, and there will be recommended and required vaccinations to make sure you are protected against any possible health issues that you may face in specific areas. Changing Worlds is here to help and we are on hand to provide you with advice on visas and vaccinations.




Flights
Booking your flights is an essential part of your trip. That's why we have teamed-up with STA Travel. This means that once you have reserved your place on your chosen placement, trip or tour, you will have a dedicated booking agent on hand to talk through your plans. 

Travelling after your project? Need a round-the-world ticket? Not a problem. Your booking agent will work with you to find the most suitable and flexible flights possible. And remember, the sooner you book your tickets, the better the price will be.

They also hold an ATOL licence through the Civil Aviation Authority, meaning you can book in confidence, secure in the knowledge that your flights are fully protected.
 
Note: If you choose to book your tickets through another flight provider, you must ensure that they hold a full ATOL licence.
 
Why are flights not included?
By not including flights in our placements, trips and tours, it avoids us having to pass on unnecessary admin charges to you. This keeps the cost of your trip lower and also means you have the freedom to search around for the lowest fares and most flexible tickets that fit your travel plans. It also means you can benefit from the expertise of our preferred partner – STA Travel.
 
Insurance
We take the safety of our travellers very seriously. You must therefore book adequate travel insurance before you come away with us – you simply won’t be able to participate in your placement, trip or tour if you don’t. Although policies vary, your insurance must include emergency medical expenses, personal accident cover, and repatriation. We also recommend that you book baggage, personal liability and cancellation cover.
 
To help you navigate through this confusing world of insurance, we have partnered with STA Travel to offer you a specialist insurance service. Your personal advisor will find out exactly what you’re planning to do, from scuba diving to jumping out of planes, and tailor a policy specific to your requirements. In addition to this personal service, some of the other benefits of booking with STA Travel are as follows:

• A simple extension service that gives you the flexibility to extend your 4-week volunteer project while in-country (up to 24 months!)
• Cover for over 100 adventure sports and adrenalin activities, including black water rafting, bungee jumping, elephant trekking, heli-skiing, kite surfing, scuba diving, shark cage diving and sky diving
• Peace of mind – STA Travel is an Appointed Representative of Towergate Underwriting Group Limited and is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.
 
Note: You must provide us with details of your travel insurance before you leave as you will not be permitted to participate on your placement, trip or tour if you do not have adequate cover. It is also advisable to book your cover as early as possible to make sure you are insured for cancellation of your trip due to illness, serious accident or any other insurable reason.
 
Why is insurance not included?
Each of our volunteer’s plans are different, and while STA Travel can provide adequate cover for the vast majority of our travellers, there may be some activities or destinations that cannot be covered by STA Travel. It is therefore important to give you the freedom to choose the insurance that covers your plans and that you feel comfortable with. It also saves us from having to pass on extra admin costs to you.

Visas 
Different destination countries have different visa requirements depending on things such as your length of stay and your reasons for entering the country, and whether you will be gaining paid work during your time in the country. Changing Worlds will supply you with any advice you need with regards to the visas you require for your chosen destination, and we will make information available to you to assist with your application.

It is important that you check your visa requirements well in advance of your travel date, as with many tourist and working holiday visas you will need to submit an application to the relevant consulate, embassy or high commission before your travel date. In some cases entry to your destination country will be granted at immigration on arrival without having to apply for a visa before the departure date for your travels.

With all visa applications it is important that you have sufficient space available in your passport for the relevant visas required for your travels, and that your passport is valid for at least six months after your planned date of return.

Vaccination
At least 6 – 8 weeks before your chosen travel date you should visit your local GP or Nomad Travel Clinic to discuss your vaccination and medication requirements. Your medical professional will be able to advise you of any recommended and required vaccinations for your chosen destination(s).You should inform your doctor of all of your destination countries, and what activities you plan on doing, and in which regions you plan to stay while you are there, as different regions and activities have different health risks in some countries.

Some destination countries will require you to produce a certificate of vaccination in order to enter the country, so be sure that you understand any vaccination requirements for your chosen destination, so that you do not have any issues when passing through customs.

Above all you should make sure you are well prepared for your travels, so that you have the best experience possible whilst overseas!

If you have any questions or would like some more information, simply contact one of our friendly Travel Advisors. You can give us a call, request a call back or drop us an email and they will be able to answer any questions you might have.

We will ask you to provide some key information to help us create the best overseas experience for you, such as medical and dietary requirements, any previous language lessons you have done, and what you’re hoping to get out of your time abroad. We may also ask you to complete a police background check.

Flights and Insurance
You will need to book your flights and travel insurance before you leave, and then provide us with these details. We do not include flights and insurance in the project fee (to avoid passing on extra admin costs to you) but our partners will help you find the best options around.

Visas 
Next you will need to get your visa for your trip. British citizens do not require visas unless they are planning to work before or after the course, in which case a Working Holiday Visa will be required. We will also provide you with lots of information to make obtaining your visa very straightforward.

We will ask you for your final payment 90 days before your scheduled departure date. Once paid, you will be ready to pack your bags, grab your passport and get on the plane!

4) What ages are allowed on the trip? 
We recommend that those taking part in this trip should be 18+ year olds. For those who are under 18 years old, it is still possible to take part in the trip, we would however need written consent from a parent or legal guardian. Please mention this in the comments section of your booking.

The general schedules for this trip runs from Monday to Friday (unless otherwise stated that some weekend work is available) with evenings during the week, and weekends free for travel, excursions and activities.

Your teaching placement will take place at the school between 2.00pm - 5.00pm with mornings free to prepare your lesson plans. You can see an example itinerary on the 'Extra Info' tab. 

6) When can a participant arrive? 
As part of our in-country service we endeavour to provide an airport pick-up for all participants. A participant should arrive at their arrival airport between 6.00am and 6.00pm on the Sunday of the weekend of their trip start date, and will be met in the airport arrivals by a member of our in-country team or transfer service.

In all such cases, please make sure we have all information of your arrival in good time before your trip.

7) Where do you pick-up and drop off? 
Return transfers to the airport are not provided, however we do covered your drop-off to the closest main city to your trip location, NOT to the airport. This is due to people having a range of different plans after their trip, and to avoid complications and logistical nightmares, transfers back to the airport are not available. You can expect to pay 300,000 IDR (approx £15) for return transport.  

8) How are participants transported? 
Trip participants should expect to be transferred from the airport to their trip location by public transport (Taxi or Coach). Depending on your chosen trip, trip related transport can vary between minibus, open air cars, boats, and even bicycles.

We require our participants to be socially active whilst taking part in your trip! This trip incorporates lots of inter-action with the local people and culture, involves some local travel, and our volunteer projects will need you to use initiative the ability to think on your feet. In all cases, our in-country coordinators will be there to guide you and provide 24hr support to ensure everything is running smoothly.

10) Will I need a Visa?
Citizens from a large list of countries, including the UK will required a tourist visa to enter Indonesia (This is referred to as a B-211 Visa)

Tourist visa B-211 terms.
• The visa lasts for 60 days, and is then extendable once in country 4 times every 30 days.

• You cannot apply for the visa until 30 days before your travel to Indonesia 

• A visa is a single entry. If you leave the country before the visa expires, you cannot use this visa again.

• You can apply for the Tourist Visa B-211 through the Indonesian Embassy website in your home country.

Please note, you cannot apply for the Tourist Visa from inside Indonesia. 

Visa B-211 additional requests
You might have to include a bank statement to guarantee availability of funds to cover your expenses whilst in Indonesia. You may also need to provide proof of a return or onward ticket (onward ticket to any destination booked for a date no later than 6 months after your date of entry into Indonesia)

Alternatively, if you are staying in Indonesia for less than 4 weeks you can get an Visa on Arrival at the Indonesian airport for no fee. This visa only lasts 30 days and is not extendable in country. We therefore advise purchasing the 60 day tourist visa if you plan on travelling around Indonesia after your project.  

11) Will I need to pay Airport Tax?
You will be required to pay 200,000 IDR (Approx £10) airport tax on departing Bali.
