For many low income families, with no means to pay for private child care, they rely on public day care centers.  The centers provide care, safe haven and meals for children 6 months to three years of age.   These centers provide children integral development in a safe and appropriate place; each center has an average of 15 to 20 children and 3 women in charge of the kids.

In each center the little ones will receive a balanced diet, serving school snacks and lunch. Volunteers will contribute to the education, child care, health and nutrition support provided by the centers. Tasks will focus on looking after the kids, feeding them changing diapers, pre-school educational games and recreational learning support, taking them to the bathroom and helping with the cleaning of the center. Volunteers with basic Spanish are welcome. Language Immersion lessons are available. This program is only for females.
