Dates & booking
Please note that there are religious holidays in Bali in early April, late June and early November 2017. During these periods alternative volunteering activities will be arranged instead of working with the children, such as community and renovation work. There are also occasional festival days throughout the year which will affect school opening. 2018 religious and festival dates will be released in due course, and will likely cover similar date ranges. Childcare volunteering does not run during June, July, August, and December. You will automatically be placed with the teaching project during these months.
