At the level of children, they have shown attachment to the preschool and its teaching staff, has been impacted in the decrease of aggressive behavior between classmates, has increased the sociability among them, likewise their level of introversion was surpassed. At the end of the course, users have shown extensive manifestations of sociability, knowledge of the world, attitude change, and samples of artistic skills.

At the community level, the Pre-School Program enjoys respect and prestige for having added services, such as access to the Library “The Corner of Tales”, education with playful methodologies, care in the psychological clinic, attention in the community health center, and classes of dance, drawing and painting.


The program at the beginning of the period faced serious economic problems due to lack of budget, added to this the lack of support from the parents of the children, which required to look for an exit strategy to the crisis, an open and close dialogue with the community, it was preponderant to solve the problem, who promoted collection activities, helping to overcome the crisis.

The deficit of restrooms units in the salons, was a problematic felt in the period, this crisis was resolved in consensus with the community of parents who supported the construction of a new restroom unit for boys in particular.

Lack of understanding on the part of some parents, in admitting small accidents with their children. The exit to the problem was to establish a frank dialogue to get to see reason in the relatives, who ended up supporting the preschool.

Furniture is not suitable for the third level classroom, this problem has been pending for the year 2018. However the coordination with the Ministry of Education and CAPRI (NGO), allowed to achieve the donation of three tables with 18 chairs, to help to decrease the problem.
