The kindergarten “Ana Joaquina Andino” is a public mixed preschool for children 4 - 5 years old. There are around 4 teachers in charge of their schooling in daytime Schedule (the mornings). Here, children learn to develop their motor skills and early social skills. They receive some English classes but not necessarily on a daily basis. They need the help of the volunteers due to the number of children, so that they receive the proper attention and stimulation. The volunteers’ English-speaking skills also contribute to improve the English classes that are offered.
