Kinder at El Cocal

After seeing so many little ones simply wandering the streets of El Cocal in the mornings, we decided to set up a kinder program for children aged 2-6, offering them a fun, safe and interactive area for these kids to play and learn.

Although it was off to a slow start with only 2 kids on day one, more and more kids have been registering every day and it looks likes it’s going to be a great success.

Lydia, a volunteer from Sweden, has been teaching them colours, numbers, pencil control and other essential preschool skills. This should give the kids a great head start once they finally start school, which means they will be able to make the most of what little school time they receive.

The kinder kids have had such fun playing and learning with Lydia and her sparkling enthusiasm has kept them smiling and laughing all throughout the day!
