What is Casa Abierta?
Casa Abierta is a care center which offers integral attention for children in the community of La Carpio where they experience the benefits of all around care to strengthen their growth and education. Here the children between the ages of two and nine years can enjoy diverse environments.

  • Creative environment: Includes music, dancing, singing, playing and art which favor and support their skills and abilities.
  • Spiritual environment: Where faith, hope and love are passed on while considering values such as respect, inclusivity, and solidarity.
  • Integral environment: Instigates values such as equality and respect among all children with the goal of strengthening their confidence and security in a place where they feel loved, happy and protected.

We are a program engaged with integral development and children’s rights; a mission which offers an education and alimentation of quality, in the hands of a team with extensive pedagogic experience.

We are a national benchmark, our vision being integral education for children including spaces and methodologies which are educating, creative, inclusive and involve different components: Family, community, politics and church whilst also promoting the physical, mental, spiritual and social development of the children in Costa Rica.
