January 18, 2017
With the recent signing of an agreement, done at the "Juan Ignacio Molina" meeting hall of the Institute of Humanities, it was materialized an alliance between the University and the National Board for Kindergartens (JUNJI) for the construction of a kindergarten that expects to receive, from 2018, the children of students from our Academic Institution.
This step was particularly highlighted by the Vice President for Student Development, Sergio Matus. "It is a great advance for students in the sense that there is one less element to interfere with their education, today we have gratuity, we will now have a nursery and we can say with pride that our students have a minimum coverage to be able to study in peace," he said.
The Vice President said that they have tried to do the project previously, with another foundation, but at the last moment the project did not go ahead.
In the same perspective, he added that to put at the disposal of the students this type of facilities is one of the goals of the University, "This strategic alliance with Junji allows us to be sure to deliver a quality service to the children of UTalca students".
The project, which will benefit 96 children of students of the UTALCA, will mean an investment of close to 800 million pesos (US$ 1.2, approx.). There will be two nurseries that will take care of the infants from 84 days to 2 years old, and there are two more levels for the 2 to 4 years old.
The regional director of the Junji, Andrés Esquivel, also talked about this initiative and indicated that this service agreed on the signing of the agreement, "Because we know the needs that exist in this institution." In the same vein, he mentioned the need to reach all sectors, not only to the most vulnerable ones, to extend the benefits of having nurseries. "We are confident that the new kindergarten is going to be well focused and we will permanently have children who will benefit from its early childhood education," he said.
Together with the authorities of the UTALCA and Junji, at the signing ceremony of the agreement were also present members of the board of the Federation of Students (FEUTAL). His vice president, Terán Valenzuela, said: "It is a news that we receive in a very satisfactory manner with arms wide open; it has been a historical demand of the students and now we see that progress is being made in a concrete way with the construction of a kindergarten that comes to solve a problem of the students of the University, and who had not had access to this benefit up until now."
It is expected in the course of this year the implementation of the works, in order that the new building, two floors and a thousand square meters, which will be located in front of the Vine and Wine Center, will be ready during 2018.
