Anniversary 55 of the foundation of the daycare Rayitos de Sol

When she "reviews" the years of her childhood, Teresa remembers with pleasure her daycare Rayitos de Sol of Jaruco, where her mother took her with less than two months of birth to be able to join the work.

More than half a century has passed since then and nevertheless she keeps, in addition to the images, smells and tastes that she has never been able to forget, such as rice pudding, soup, yogurt, very healthy meals that are offered to children in those ages of life.


Sleeping on cots, eating without the help of adults, fastening shoes, and learning other elementary issues that give a certain degree of independence, are also important actions that children learn in these spaces strengthened today with a qualified staff.


The daycare Rayitos de Sol of Jaruco was born on February 6, 1964, today celebrates its 55th anniversary and has been one of the most beautiful and enduring works of the Revolution in our municipality, with a great human sense, as it not only cooperates in the education of children from an early age, but favors the incorporation of women from Jaruqueñas into working life.


Its maximum impeller was the Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz, who gave the task to Vilma Espin, almost immediately to the revolutionary triumph, when she directed the Federation of Cuban Women, an organization that provided great support to such institutions.


Since its foundation, teaching has been aimed at achieving the maximum possible development of children in ages ranging from 0 to 6 years, which includes the intellectual, the affective-emotional, the motor, the values, the attitudes, the forms of behavior and the physical.


Today Teresa is a doctor and it is very likely that this love for the profession has arisen in one of those rooms where the children, in their role plays, begin to get interested and know the most diverse professions and trades; among them those of builders, doctors, teachers and, possibly, even journalist.
