Preschool Program

At our center we offer a pre-school education to 20 children aged 2 – 6. The children are dropped off as early as 7 a.m., before their mothers go to work, and stay until after lunch. At the “Isla de Niños” the children play, draw, sing, listen to stories and engage in various gross- and fine-motor activities. They receive breakfast, snack, a warm lunch and another snack before they go home.

Many of our pre-school children are the children of young single mothers who work hard to support their families but don’t have an adequate place to leave their children while they go to work. They cannot afford to pay for child care. The “Isla de Niños” provide a safe, loving and supportive environment for those children who would otherwise be left on their own during the day and would grow up without the adult guidance and loving care every child needs.
