Opening day at the new preschool classroom!

Opening day at the new preschool classroom!
February 23, 2022

This is such an exciting time for Impact Guatemala! The kids enrolled at Katie’s Preschool in La Pinada returned to the classroom at the beginning of February, following a two-month winter break. Last week we celebrated another exciting milestone for Hilmar and Senderos du Luz — a new preschool class opened in La Pinada!

The second class also offers a nutritious meal and quality, age-appropriate teaching by a local teacher, all free of charge. Ms. Nidia, the classroom teacher, reported that the first day was a bit rough — imagine 10 crying preschoolers who had never left their mothers before! — but things have improved since then and the kids are settling into their fun new routine.

Studies have shown that access to early childhood education increases the ability of a child to learn and stay in school. Preschool will provide these kids with a solid foundation on which to begin their educational journey and break the cycle of poverty.

Katie’s Place was a dream many years in the making, and the second classroom is even more of a dream come true. It just wouldn't be possible without your support. Thank you for believing in Hilmar and Impact Guatemala!
