Assist with the caring for children between the ages of 6 months and 5 years old.   This day care center allows parents a safe, secure place to leave their children while they are working.  Most of the children come from extremely impoverished families and the wage earners must work, so the child need to be minded.  The center provide shelter, food and some limited education teaching.  Most children spend 5-6 hours a day at the center. 

Volunteers engage the children and teach them how to brush their teeth, combing, dressing and some good practices that they doesn't know.  Innovation and creativity in learning is most required with the kids. Volunteers can arrange some music, dance and fun elements into the routine. Sports and physical involvement would add fun and development.
