After a brief pause over Christmas and the New Year, school supplies and video lessons went out this week to families of students enrolled at the Acorn Childcare Center. We celebrated four children who have officially graduated and are due to start kindergarten this month:

Daniela Monserrat is 5 years old. She attended the Center for two years enjoying a mix of in-person and at-home learning. She is very bright, loving and happy to participate in many activities, especially with her friends.

William Fernando is turning 6 next month. He only just enrolled at the start of last year, you may remember his powerful story from our July newsletter. He loved to play with his friends and participate in all activities, in the Center and at home.

Angie Ramos is 5 and half years old. She enrolled in the Center when she was just two years old. She loves to talk and socialize, which can cause to be become distracted at times, but she’s a responsible and happy girl.

Carlos Javier is 5 years old. He also attended the Center for two years. He is a very loving and sociable student. We’re confident that he is prepared to start his kindergarten year!

We will keep in touch with these friends and will offer continued support, if needed, during the pandemic. We’ve enrolled four new children who are ready to receive supplies and instructional videos from our teachers this week. Xela is at alert level red at the moment so we will not be able to offer in-person classes over the next few months, but our Center Director is working hard to keep up-to-date and to put everything in place so that we can safely reopen once it is allowed.


Every donation helps ensure that we can continue transforming the lives of families facing extreme poverty.

Maya Childcare Inc is run entirely by volunteers, thus 100% of your donation goes directly to the Acorn Childcare Center.

The fact that the Acorn Childcare Centre is able to offer such crucial, life-changing support to children and families living in extreme poverty, is thanks to the work and the generosity of many people, doing and giving what they can to help. Every contribution matters, and together all these efforts make a huge difference.
