Paz & Play addresses the childcare strains from the short public school day in Oaxaca. The day ends between 12 and 1 pm, this along with the shortage of high-quality, affordable, and educational childcare options puts pressure on working families. Paz & Play students also often attend Paz Montessori when their public school teachers are on strike or have planning days.
Paz ended the 2018-2019 school year with 8 Paz & Play participants at our campus at Guadalupe Victoria, and 3 at San Lorenzo Cacaotepec. On both campuses, students received English language instruction, environmental education, and peace education through Nonviolent Communication, conflict resolution, and restorative justice. At Guadalupe Victoria, students participated in field trips and entered a partnership with the Oaxacan Lending Library and Poco a Poco. The program at San Lorenzo Cacaotepec is two months old and we are excited about entering the new school year offering afterschool care to more families!
The generous gifts that you have given the financial aid and scholarships necessary for current participants to continue with us for the 2019-2020 school year. Paz will continue to work to offer Paz & Play to even more students at our two locations and provide more enrichment activities. From all of us here at Paz, thank you for your ongoing support!
