A Day at Casa Leandra


The children's day begins with public school from 8:00 AM until noon. Three days a week (Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) they then walk to Casa Leandra for the after-school program. Their afternoon includes:

  • meal prayer, lunch, and the students brush their teeth

  • bible study—the Christian education part of their day
  • time for homework, either in groups, or 1 on 1 with a tutor
  • organized recreation activities
  • meal prayer and a snack
  • free time for games, puzzles, etc.
  • prayer at the end of the program
  • frequently, meals are prepared for the families of the children and sent home with them
