With her big smile and bouncy personality, Katya came to us from Argentina, through the Israeli Volunteer Association. She wanted to volunteer at a school, but came to Chimes’ Hadas Early Childhood Rehabilitative Day Care Center in Holon for a tour and fell in love the preschool children.
Katya plays with the children, and assists with eating and group activity participation. She has learned how to approach each child in the way they can accept with warmth, love, encouragement, and many hugs.
With knowledge of the prescribed activities and exercises in each child’s individual advancement plans, Katya supports the professional team by helping the children make progress toward their cognitive and physical goals.
Throughout the day and every day, the smiles on the faces of both the children and Katya tell the whole story.
This is an opportunity to say thank you to all our dedicated volunteers.
Please see the video below to see Katya enjoying her time at Chimes and in Israel.
