Community childcare centres in the Nova Iguaçu municipality

Casa do Menor currently owns a kindergarten “Rosa dos Ventos”, located in a very deprived area of Baixada Fluminense, a suburb of Rio de Janeiro.


This facility organises play and educational activities for children in the pre-school age group. During the day, the children carry out various activities and workshops proposed by the teachers and educators.


In “Rosa dos Ventos”, as in all the organisation’s facilities, activities are designed and carried out using the “Presence” pedagogy.

This kindergarten is an important reference point for the community, since the area in which it is located is characterised by a lot of violence.
