Glad you came to know our world, even if only virtually …

Founded in 2001, the Day care centre Arte Tio João was created in order to counteract the lack of day care centres for newborns in the Rocinha slum at Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Indeed , taking care of 4 months old children is a huge responsibility. Nevertheless, we decided to accept the challenge.

Here our children follow an educational process and our goal is for them to integrate all this knowledge and use it for life. An what knowledge are we talking about? Well, education, hygiene, love, trust, sharing, dedication, and happiness.

Our day care centre relies partially on government subsidy but mostly on donations. This donations allow us to keep doing these amazing work that is educating in a playful way.

This is our mission!
