When Donna Quathamer came to San Miguel in 2000 she asked local women selling their goods in the market and on the street what could she do to help to make their lives easier. It was common to see women working with babies wrapped in cloths and strapped to their backs as well as young infants and toddlers hiding around their feet. These women expressed a need for a safe place to leave their children while they worked and earned money to feed, clothe and house their children.
Casa de los Ángeles was born with that vision: to create a free daycare where poor, working mothers have the comfort of knowing their children are safe and families are nurtured, respected and supported and can learn in a secure environment.Since then, Casa de los Ángeles has grown to serve nearly 100 children each day. The daycare center provides a happy, educational environment for children under the age of five where they get to play, eat, learn and laugh. In addition, we have become a support network for local women who complete an hour of service for each day that their child is at the day care, thereby participating actively in the care of their children.
Centro Infantil San Pablo (CISP) is a nonprofit organization founded by St. Paul’s Anglican Church of San Miguel. It was founded with a mission to provide free, high quality, secular pre-school education to Mexican children with the greatest need and prepare them to enter the first grade.
We know that an investment in children’s education at the Centro produces results. Now, with our two organization merged, we will serve more than 170 children and families from age 2 month – 6 years.
