Daycare for Kids of Working Mothers in Rural Peru

Aug 12, 2011

Daycare and school up and running!

The Yachay Wasi school is open now with two grade levels! The nursery has 17 children enrolled, and the kindergarten has 12 students. Families pay what they are able to pay. The school has accepted all the children it currently can, but there is a waiting list of families to send their children there as soon as the school can afford to grow and increase the number of enrolled students.

The school is a happy, colorful place. Children receive instruction in English, Spanish and Quechua, and there are lots of educational games and toys that are rarely seen in most Peruvian schools. The teachers are hardworking and dedicated. Your continued support will allow the school to accept more students and provide a quality education to children of all socioeconomic backgrounds.
