Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me,
and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
– Mathew 19:14
“Garden of Hope” – Jardín de Esperanza was established in 2006 to serve local families who are in need of childcare for infants during the day while they are at work. Jardín de Esperanza is a government certified child daycare and is managed by our local pastors wife, who received a daycare administrative license a few years ago. Today our daycare serves 30-40 infants a day from the local community and provides snacks throughout the entire day. Our children are exposed to Christian values and a basic early child development curriculum.
Our child daycare also supports our students at our primary school, El Porvenir Primaria. Many children, especially girls as young as 6 years old, are forced to stay at home to take care of their siblings while their parents are at work. To provide opportunities for our students to continue their education, we welcome infants of students from our local elementary school to entrust their siblings at Jardín de Esperanza.
We believe that seeds of faith are being planted in the hearts of the children as they are taken care of our staff that shares the love of Christ with them everyday. Throughout the years, God has been faithful in His provisions for Jardín de Esperanza. Starting with an empty plot of land, today our daycare has multiple classrooms, office, kitchen, playground, ample teaching supplies, and most important of all – beautiful children who are able to experience love from God-loving staff and teachers.
