Information about the company that’s offering the internship:

Toddlers Academy Nursery and Kindergarten is a bilingual kindergarten in Sofia, where subjects are taught both in English and in Bulgarian. Since 2010 Toddlers Academy has been providing quality early years education in Sofia. 

We specialise in teaching languages to very young children through play and a structured programme of activities throughout the day. We feel privileged to be one of the first places outside the home where children make friends and begin their education; our multinational groups are structured like a big family, in which each child is encouraged to enhance their individual personality, while learning to interact with others.“

During the summer we usually have administration interns who help run the centre. Also, of course, teaching internships are carried out—the interns take care of children and organize fun learning activities. 

Internships are paid, and you work from nine to five, with an hour break at midday. What is noteworthy, we´re talking about an educational institution, an organization that facilitates learning; therefore, it is expected that interns who are fortunate enough to be part of the team will also get to enjoy a dynamic learning experience.
