Welcome to our daycare!We have the perfect place for your child!
GLOBAL CHILD DEVELOPMENTSelf-esteem, confidence and independence.
We promote self-esteem, confidence and independence through different experiences that children encounter during their day. Active learning is encouraged because children actively participate in their own learning process through observation, discovery, exploration of their environment and how to interact with other children and the adults around them.
OUR MISSIONWe put children first.
Our mission is to teach the child to have positive and harmonious social relationships with his educator, other children (peers) and the community. An approach to problem solving is encouraged as well as learning their emotions so that, for example, they can resolve a conflict through words.
THE DEVELOPMENT OF HEALTHY HABITSFive goals.
Goal 1: Hygiene
