Our residents, the girls, boys and teens of Casa Hogar, are back to full-time in person classes. The vast majority of our current 22 residents, study in the afternoons. There are not enough public schools in Los Cabos to meet the demand so many have split use with early morning and early afternoon start times.
As new residents arrive to our home throughout the year, enrollment into public schools is generally much more feasible for afternoon study times. There is more demand in the community for morning study times.
This works out well for us allowing our Caregivers to work in conjunction with our Academic Coordinator to provide homework assistance and tutoring in the mornings immediately after breakfast.
Our Caregivers are tasked with many different responsibilities including driving the daily routine, encouraging and demonstrating positive habits, cultivating child-mentor relationships and responding to challenging behavior. This is required throughout the day, every day of the year.
Progress comes slowly at times with occasional regressions. Our Caregivers hang in there when the times are tough. Indeed, they are our heroes.
