FC: Little Samuel Daycare
1: The Samuelito Daycare is located in the Barrio la Molienda, Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The daycare targets low income families that are struggling to provide the care needed for their children, while trying to work. The daycare provides a safe and healthy environment for children ages 6 months to 6 years old. The program encourages the "integral development" of each child - spiritually, psychologically, cognitively and physically.

17: The Daycare wants to be involved in the lives of the children and their families in this fragile stage of their lives. Samuelito Daycare provides the children with healthy meals and snacks; they are bathed and taught general hygiene procedures, which are often missing at home. Our goal is to strengthen the family unit socially, emotionally, physically and spiritually, through seminars for parents which are held on a regular basis and encouraged heavily to be attended. | The Daycare offers not only a safe environment for children, it also provides support for parents (subsidy program, training sessions, counseling).
