Educational Programs

We offer special education, recreational activities, plus art, music and dance workshops. Pasitos de Luz is, for many of our children, a ‘home away from home’ and an integral part of that home environment is our special education center.  One of our special education teachers Marta embodies Pasitos de Luz philosophies. We asked Maestra Marta why she has stayed at Pasitos de Luz for such a long time. Her answer is simple:

I just love working with the kids. I learn from them every day; I never stop learning from them“. Marta recognizes the rewards that come from teaching our special needs children   “The best reward is to see the children’s smiles. With a single hug, that is enough”.

We currently have four separate classrooms for our special education classes:

EARLY EDUCATION CLASSES: This space is designed for early learning classes, benefiting our youngest children, and helping us to build levels of trust and understanding. We look to develop the child’s potential, giving the child the opportunity to experience and learn from real life situations, focusing on childhood development: cognitive, socio-affective and motor.

AUTONOMOUS CLASSES: We focus on developing levels of autonomy  and a greater sense of self control and independence in the child.  These classes aim to increase confidence and their sense of security.

ABILITY CLASSES: In these classes, we work on levels of improvement in every-day learning. These classes focus on skills development and increasing proficiency by capitalizing on the child’s strengths.

READING AND WRITING CLASSES: In this classroom, we focus on developing essential reading and writing skills as part of a strategic learning program. The aim is to give our children the skills and confidence to be able to communicate successfully in the outside world.

SPECIAL AUTISM CLASSES: We work one-on-one with the children, giving them freedom to express themselves and to discover the world around them.
