COMENZAMOS LAS CLASES!

El lunes 11 de Marzo fue nuestro primer día de clases del 2013.
Ese dìa recibimos a los 46 niños y niñas que asisten al jardín  junto a sus familias. Hubo lágrimas, risas, juegos, canciones y mucha emoción.
Durante todo el mes las niñas y niños se fueron adaptando, conociendo y aceptando y los tres grupos se han terminado de consolidar. Ellos mismos eligieron sus nombres y tenemos a los k`uychis (arco iris), los chaskas (estrellas) y los killas (lunas).
Cada lunes los niños hacen pan para comer en su refrigerio el resto de la semana. En el proceso, aprenden a comer diferentes tipos de harinas y semillas.
Los más pequeños comenzaron los talleres de psicomotricidad, y los tres grupos participaron en un taller de fieltro con Joana.
También comenzamos a trabajar en el Programa Ecológico Tierra de Niños, introduciendo a nuestras niñas y niños en el reciclaje, la huerta, el contacto con la tierra y el cuidado del medio ambiente.
El día 22 Celebramos el Día Mundial del Agua, participando en un pasacalle por la Plaza de Armas de Ollantaytambo con el objetivo de conscientizar a la población acerca del cuidado del agua. Los niños hicieron carteles y aprendieron una canción referida al agua, que cantaban mientras caminaban con sus carteles levantados.
Todavía nos quedan muchas cosas más por hacer.
El 2013 será un gran año en Yachay Wasi!!



Monday 11th was our first day of 2013 at the Early Education Center.
46 girls and boys came with their families. There were tears, laughs, games, songs and great excitement.

Throughout the month children were adapting, knowing and accepting each other. The three groups chose their names so now we have the K'uychi (Rainbow), the Chaska (Stars) and the Killa (Moon) Classrooms.
 
Each Monday children make bread to eat in the snack the rest of the week. In the process, they learn to eat different types of flours and seeds.
 
The littlest ones began psychomotor skills workshop, and the three groups participated in a workshop of felt with Joana.

We also started to work in the ecological Tierra de Niños program, introducing our girls and boys in recycling, farming, the contact with the earth and the care for the environment.
 
On the 22 we celebrated the World Water Day, participating in a parade at the Ollantaytambo's Plaza de Armas in order to empower the population about water care. Children made posters and learned a song referring to the water, that they sang as they walked with their posters.

We have still much more to do.

2013 will be a great year in Yachay Wasi!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

This is the last day of the year and making a balance of it, we feel that is the perfect moment to say THANK YOU!

We are really really grateful for all the help and support received, for the smiles on our little children´s faces, for the love and confidence of their families, for the strength and kindness of the teachers, for not giving up despite all the problems we´ve been through this year.

THANKS TO OUR FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS, for helping us build our dreams, for helping usto offera respectful, loving and quality education to our children, and support to their families, for letting us show them that everything is possible with love and determination, for helping us to pass through this really hard year we had to face, and for giving us hope to continue.

2015 was another successful year at Yachay Wasi!!!

The year came to the end and we want to thank every and each person who has been part of this great year.
It was tough, we had to work very hard during the hole year, but we can say now that it was worthy. The Yachay Wasi children had a very happy year full of games, joyness, learning, songs and friends.
We all feel very grateful and rewarded for all we could achieve toghether.

To celebrate this we organized a big party. Some mothers cooked a "chocolatada" (hot chocolate) with paneton, there was a clown show, presents for the children and more surprises.






Children participated in a play in which they danced representing a story that they loved to listen to during the year. They worked hard with the teachers making their costumes and decorations the past weeks and it all looked amazing.








Families, children and teachers had a wonderful time toghether. We are glad to bring hapiness and joy to these great people, who rarely have the oportunity to live moments like this one…

"Dìa del Logro" en Yachay Wasi

Antes de irnos de vacaciones de medio año en Agosto, hemos celebrado nuestro primer "Día del Logro" del 2014. 

El día del logro es una estrategia de presentación y celebración sobre los avances y logros de aprendizajes de l@s niñ@s.

En este caso quisimos demostrar elpapel fundamental y casi exclusivo del juego en la educación de l@s niñ@s hasta los 6 años de edad.



Cada niñ@ elaboró 3 o 4 juegos didácticos y juguetes re-utilizando material desechable. 
Algunos de los juegos fueron: palitos chinos (para aprender y practicar el conteo, comparación de cantidades, desarrollar la concentración y el ingenio); juego de pista (como el juego de la oca, pero ellos mismos escogieron qué encontrarían en cada casillero y qué consecuencias tendrían al caer en cada uno, acá se trabajan también conceptos matemáticos como cantidades, conteo, nociones de espacio, etc) ; enhebrados y enganches con limpiapipas y coladores (para desarrollar la motricidad fina en los más pequeños);tiro al blanco (ad…
