Your internship as a teaching assistant

During your internship on Curacao you will find out that you get a lot of responsibility at a school on Curacao. More than, for example, at a school in the Netherlands. You will of course receive good guidance, but you are also expected to quickly find your way in the school system. This responsibility makes your internship on Curaçao very instructive.

School times on Curaçao

The times of your internship as a teaching assistant will differ per school. But at all schools you will have to start early. The school times on Curaçao are different, this is due to the tropical climate that Curaçao has.

Your days will start earlier, usually between 7am and 8am and end around 2pm. That is very early, but this gives you free time every afternoon to enjoy the sun on beautiful Curaçao.

Not all accommodations on Curaçao have standard linen available. That is why we offer this service. That saves a lot of space in your suitcase ;-) 

The linen consists of a pillow, bottom sheet and duvet cover. On Curaçao we do not sleep under blankets because of the heat. There are no towels. 

If you use our pick-up service, you will receive your linen directly at Hato, otherwise you can pick it up at our office.  


Calling each other on Curaçao is very expensive. That is why a local SIM card is definitely recommended. 

You put this SIM card in your phone, but you keep your normal WhatsApp number. This way you can call and app with the home front & friends via WhatsApp as you are used to.

You can then call each other on Curaçao at a local rate with your new local telephone number.
