Here is Tyson with one of his teachers, Carlos. Tyson really likes how Carlos teaches and is learning a lot from him! This is Tyson's "classroom". A table, chairs and whiteboard in the garden!
For the first month while we were in school Kai was watched at the school by Medalit. She cared for Kai and another baby boy. At first Kai had a really hard time...it was not easy being handed off to someone who didn't speak his language I think. But, he began to warm up to her and loved break time when he could come out and see Mom and Dad...and all the other students, of course! The problem is the school is really just a house so Kai was mostly in a little room all day and if he did go out into the garden he was disrupting the other students. So, last week we decided to look for little preschool for him...in Peru it is called a jardin (which means garden). We found one just a block away from the school that seems really great. Kai had his first day on Monday and although he has cried the last two days when he was dropped off, he is quite a happy boy when we pick him up. He is an extremely social kid so it is good for him to be with other kids, doing activities...and he will pick up Spanish much faster this way!
Below is a picture of Kai with Medalit in the garden of the school....he loved drawing on the white boards!
This is the picture of the front of our school...it is really just a big house turned into a school.
