About us


La Gaviota

In December 1953, the Ladies’ Committee of Our Lady of Socorro, in cooperation with the Secretaría de Salubridad y Asistencia  (Ministry of Health and Assistance), inaugurated the kindergarten for the service of children in the area, run by the religious of that congregation.

In 1986 the property was donated to APAC (Association for People with Cerebral Palsy) and the therapy service for children with neuromotor disabilities began.

Likewise, in the 90s the teaching of groups to children with and without disabilities began, with a favorable response from the community, so little by little, through the improvement of the facilities, the number of children increased. of beneficiaries

In February 1996 APAC ceded its facilities and its population to a new patronage and the Centro de Estimulación Temprana La Gaviota IAP, was established, which joined the Secretaría de Educación Publica (Public Ministery of Education),  in 2008.

Currently services are provided to 60 children with and without disabilities annually from 1 to 10 years of age, through comprehensive and inclusive preschool education.
