Udaan is a space for igniting curiosity and love of learning in children. It seeks to provide an environment for an overall development of child’s personality. To achieve this goal, a progressive preschool has recently been started for the local village children. It is designed as an experiential learning space, where teachers work as facilitators to enable & support a child in her learning journey, rather than trying to teach her.
Besides the day school, Udaan has a Learning Center which is focused on providing a friendly & fun learning space for the children. It consists of a large library, science & math lab, puzzles & indoor games room, activity room & playgrounds. All these facilities are used by children on a daily basis after their school hours & all day during weekends & other school holidays. Various workshops & programs on life skills, skits & theater, science models, dance & music, mathematics, sketching & painting, etc are organized at Udaan, and occasionally at (& in collaboration with) other village schools. Field trips & hikes are also organized from time to time. All the resources & activities at the Learning Center are offered free of charge.
We are looking for a Coordinator who could lead this initiative. A person who loves to be with children, and is motivated, focused & passionate about enabling them in realizing their inner potential for happiness, creativity, exploration & critical thinking. Such children will connect back with their communities as proactive individuals and encourage the elders to join in the effort to reconnect with nature, re-energize the community and reinvent the future.
This role would also require working with & coordinating our team of facilitators & volunteers, planning curriculum, activities & workshops, outreach in the village, and establishing partnerships with other schools. It would be preferable if the applicant has an experience of 5 years or more on working with children.
