Description: The Mission of La Casa del Árbol [The Treehouse] is to offer high quality education, and areas of interest have been prepared to provide a safe and comfortable environment with creative and reflective capacity, rich with training and educational experiences, helping in the formation of moral, ethical, and cultural values that help children to develop all of their abilities and talents, keeping in mind the skills and abilities of each child within a framework of rules that promote individual respect and love for oneself, for others, and for the environment. Promoting committed family participation, which contributes to the success of the child, the family and the community.

The Vision of La Casa del Árbol [The Treehouse] is for all children to receive high-quality education in an environment of equity and inclusion, recognizing that each child is singular, and therefore it is necessary to make individualized adaptations to create strategies to support their development, that is, including making adaptations to cover the needs of each one of the children, where there is no prejudice based on their race, language, or beliefs, avoiding stereotypes, valuing these first years of life, promoting inclusion and diversity.

The Philosophy of La Casa del Árbol is to promote the curiosity of every child in a multicultural environment where dignity is provided for their culture, language, beliefs and customs, and in this way the child gets the best performance for his or her development and reinforces his or her own identity. Families are encouraged to collaborate and make suggestions, knowing that their viewpoints will be respected and valued when it comes time to make decisions related to children’s development, therefore I will make sure to show them empathy and sensitivity. A weekly study plan is prepared, designed with activities to support each child, keeping in mind their abilities and their own interests, with a goal being development in all areas, the observations and evaluations of each child being necessary, as they are the guide for covering all their needs. Play is an important tool for developing self-control and promoting language, cognition, and social competency. Knowing that the important thing is that we teach them to recognize their emotions and provide them strategies to be able to regulate themselves, which is necessary for conscious coexistence, which is to say, helping them to develop respect for the dignity of other people and also respect for their own rights and responsibilities as well as those of others, establishing equal relations and avoiding all types of violence, allowing them to prepare their own rules and thus learn to have good relations and work in collaboration with those around them, and in this way inclusion and respect for diversity arises in a natural manner. In La Casa del Árbol [The Treehouse], we follow a mixture of philosophies, primarily Waldorf, the child is encouraged to love, respect and care for our planet so they can make this connection with the environment.

My educational purpose is to be able to have a positive impact on the life of a child, families, and society, and this is why I make sure not to forget my role and the responsibility I have to deliver high-quality education, and therefore I have to pay attention to the methods that I use in teaching, what I teach and the way I do it, including that the way of evaluation must be in a conscious manner. I have learned that when children have time and materials, they express themselves in their way, freely and at their own pace.

Experience or specialized trainings: I have attended RCC Community College since the year 2012, in which I completed basic education for childcare, and I continue to attend college to this day, regularly taking advanced classes, classes focused on child development, I attend conferences every year and trainings to continue learning more about child development, in this way I prepare myself to provide high-quality care, implementing best practices in childcare and thus being able to comply with the standards indicated by the State. Through the years, I have had the opportunity to provide my services to children of different ages, but in the past year I have only had children of preschool age, meanwhile I continue to be focused on acquiring more knowledge and continuing to progress in quality. I have participated in the Spark program and have received 3 stars. I continue to work to get a 4-star grade and ORO has given me a step 8 qualification.
