About Világjáró Önkéntes Nonprofit Ltd.

Kindergarten is a preschool educational approach traditionally based on play, singing, practical activities such as drawing and social interaction as part of the transition from home to school. The first institutions of this kind were created at the end of the 18th century in Bavaria and Strasbourg to serve children whose parents worked at home.
In Hungary, Kindergarten is called óvoda (“place of care”). The children attend it between 3-6 years old. Participation is compulsory from the age of 3 years, although exceptions are made for reasons of development.
