Food and Hygiene for families
Food and Hygiene for families

2020 has been a worldwide challenging year! That allowed us to learn and be creative in the way we approach to children and families.

Whit one goal in mind, child development cannot stop! we started the most exiting adventure to work hand by hand with families to guarantee that children to have development spaces in their house as well as the child centers that never close because we are declared essential service in order to allow families to work.

Nutrition first: 80% of families lost or significative reduce their income sinse the pandemic started. Therefore, we send food and hygiene products to this families, collaborating to continue having the nutrition they need for child physical development.

Education must continue: 30% of children continue assisting to the centers and having their education and food programs, including the learning of new distance and hygiene measures.
With the 70% of children that stay at home to prevent the infection, we are increasing communication with families, sending child development activities, participating in the project from home and soon, we will initiate a formal project of education from home.

Support families: we also extended our work with families, to help them to have an adequate environment for children at home. Actions like: mental health activities, protection campaigns, improve work skills for work, job positions alliances among others have been key in 2020 and made the difference for families to go trough the pandemic and all situations related to it.

 And finally, Christmas!!!! This year celebrations must be in their families, so we send presents and sweets to every child and food to families that need it!

We can say 2020 strengthened our bond with families and reduce the impact of the COVID-19 in their lives.

During the first months of the year, special emphasis is placed on the construction of identity and the welcoming to new children.
New families take a tour of the Children's Center with their children, making them feel the space as their own and in an atmosphere of trust.
The rooms are filled with photos of the children and their families, making them a safe and loving space.
The older children of the Children's Center, who are 2 years old, have also explored places in the community that are important to them, for example Aisha who drew the Catholic Church of Alajuelita which the children call mass ...

Stimulation through cellophane paper
Stimulation through cellophane paper

During December, the children worked in their annual projects but also in activities related with Christmas:

They worked visual stimulation through cellophane paper. With cellophane paper children can make paper overlays and see the resulting colors through them. For the children it turned out to be a very fun activity.

We worked with the children on the theme of peace, compiling the idea of peace that they had through dialogue circles, telling songs about the importance of caring for the other and having experiences such as the creation of kites which has a meaning of expression to others of something that gives each child freedom, love, friendship, care.

The questions were asked Where do we find peace? How is the peace? How do we move when we have peace? These were some of the questions that were launched for the children to express themselves, it was in this way that we began to identify movements that the infants invented in order to move to have peace.

This month we had a fun way to learn the geometric figures playing bingo, we stimulate the logical-mathematical learning of the boys and their verbal area since while they pronounce the name of the figures the boys are repeating and also develop their visual-manual area and here they locate in their fun boards the images of the forms that we are pronouncing.

As an activity for Christmas, children were involved in a recipe to share at Christmas The quick recipe is the first meal that children can prepare, as long as adults are supervising and taking safety measures. Eating is itself an act of sharing.

During this month in the Project "Connecting with Nature", the boys and girls designed some products that are grown in the Garden of Aromas (a garden built together with the boys and girls and provides food for our "taste workshop"), using materials such as mineral modeling paste, plasticine and clay, shaping the carrot, tomato, basil and cucumber, products that were then painted in detail.

In this process the boys and girls developed their creativity, imagination and fine motor skills. And at the end of the project the boys and girls grew products that are harvested in the Garden of Aromas.
