Pavas, a San José district, will have a new child care facility designed to provide supervision for 220 children ages newborn to 6 years old. It will be available to low-income families that need the service.
The center will be equipped with two nurseries, and 10 preschool classrooms. It will also have a dining room, restrooms, hallways and playgrounds.
Shapes such as triangles and circles will be incorporated into the wall design, as a way to make the environment more friendly for the children, said the municipality.
Construction for the facility will cost 260 million colons, about $520,000, and will be paid for by the Municipalidad de San José.
