Mario Losantos del Campo Preschool Centre
We welcome 110 children between the ages of 0 to 5. They come from families with low-income and we provide a safe space where parents can leave their young children during their workday. This is key in aiding them to balance family and work life, as public education in Bolivia does not begin until the age of 5 and many of these families are not able to afford a private nursery.
In this nursery, children receive complete medical, educational, and nutritional care. As part of the centre’s facilities, it has several playgrounds, a gym, a sandbox, a hydrotherapy pool, and a climbing wall.
Rehabilitation and early stimulation service
We provide educational and therapeutic support aimed at children with physical and/or mental disabilities. In order to achieve this, within the facilities of our children’s centre, we have several classrooms specifically designed to provide early assistance to children coming from low-income families, who are unable to afford private education. We currently have specific areas for Physiotherapy, Speech Therapy, Psychopedagogy and Psychology.
As a result, children obtain expert and individualised assistance adapted to the diversity and complexity of their individual needs. This helps them to gradually join and integrate La Paz’s public educational system. Thus, this assistance becomes essential to many families, as most primary schools barely have any resources to tend for children with special needs.
