Children Support

For most working families in Costa Rica having access to a local a day care center is essential.  The center provides a safe haven for their young children as the parents go to work each day.  This center provided care for over 100 children between the ages of 2 to 6 years old. The center provides play based curriculum focusing on social, emotional and physical development of each children through interaction with their teacher and peers.

If you are seeking to gain professional teaching experience, or planning a career in early childhood development, or simply interested in supporting an educational project, consider volunteering in a classroom with Young students.

For many low income families, with no means to pay for private child care, they rely on public day care centers.  The centers provide care, safe haven and meals for children 6 months to three years of age.   These centers provide children integral development in a safe and appropriate place; each center has an average of 15 to 20 children and 3 women in charge of the kids.

The program provides services for children and adolescents who have little access to social services, and come from poor families living in and around San Jose.   Very much like a community day care, or boys and girls center in the USA, this is a safe haven for many families.   Children are provided a place to come and get basic education, some food, recreational activities and love and attention from the caring staff.

This child care centre is located in a safe area of Cartagena. It is surrounded by poor neighborhoods and the community has a big need. Many of the children that are received in this institution have a very low life quality. Their families have deplorable economic situations and sometimes they cannot afford the meals for the day.
