Services

From the very beginning, Pasitos de Luz opened its doors to offer love, support and rehabilitation to the special children of Puerto Vallarta and its surrounding areas. Our services are wide-ranging and essential to the wellbeing and improvement of each of our special children’s conditions.

We offer FREE day care services (as most of the parents are single mothers) to enable the parent(s) to work. We focus on providing specialized care, doctors on site, therapy, special education, music, dance, art, balanced meals and nutritional aid (some children take over 45 minutes to feed).  We offer a fun, caring, nurturing environment where the children can love and be loved.

Pasitos de Luz offers a number of services to the children and their families. When a child comes to us, he or she is given a complete examination by experts. A diagnosis and health program is developed for each child and our staff introduce a work plan with milestones for the child. When possible, children are also given educational goals to help them achieve their highest level of development. Nutritional deficiencies and needs are also identified. Based on the overall diagnosis, we give each child a comprehensive plan. In addition, the families are provided with education on how to incorporate these plans into the home.

Working hard all year round

We provide services Monday to Friday throughout most of the year. We only close for a few weeks each year, mainly over Christmas and New Year. We begin our day at 8:00 a.m. The children are helped onto the bus from our former location in the Pitillal neighbourhood (or are picked up along the route) and are taken to Casa Connor by 9:00 am. At 4:00 pm the children are helped onto the bus again and are taken back to their parents. They are dropped off by 5:00 pm at the location where they were picked up. Beginning in 2021, we plan to begin to offer short-term respite services to families.
