Full description
Your Jamaican impact and culture exchange at local early childhood school will begin with your pickup from your hotel lobby or the Ocho Rios cruise terminal. From there, you will be driven in comfort on a scenic roadway to a rural Jamaican community.

You can enjoy a highlight of the community with stops at points of interest to take photos and interact with the local community members. This experience will enable you to get a genuine feel for what it is like to live in rural Jamaica. Your main activity will be spending time at one of the local basic schools where you will interact with children aged 3-6 years. You can read stories in a group and one on one (depending on visitor group size) to children that are always happy to engage with visitors.

Part of the proceeds from your tour will go towards aid for the visited school, to assist in improving the school building, creating and maintaining proper bathrooms, buying much needed school supplies, creating a playground for the young children, ensuring that the school will have adequate funds for paying utility bills.

On the way back you will have lunch (meals and drinks not included) at one of Jamaica's famous jerk centers, enjoying a delicious meal with an ice cold Red Stripe beer or tropical fruit drink before heading back to your hotel or cruise ship with a heart filled with the smiles and the laughter of Jamaican children.
