The Facilities

School of Louise’s Dreams is perched on top of a hill, overlooking the town of Nagarote. The original building, donated by the mayor of the town, eventually became too small for the continually growing student body. In 2008, a generous donor provided the funds necessary to build a new facility. Today, the new school boasts five classrooms, a kitchen, and a library.

Our new library was constructed with the help of the American Nicraguan Foundation. The Right to Learn partnered with ANF to  provide the students at School of Louise’s Dreams with a comfortable reading environment, as well as an ample supply of books for various reading levels.

The new kitchen is a great improvement from the last facility. Our cooking staff now has more space, water tanks, utensils, and a gas stove. The most recent improvment was the installation of a chimney for the wood stove. Thanks to James Johnson, our staff can now cook in a smoke-free environment.

Many of the school’s materials have also been donated or purchased with the help of generous donors. The teachers now havea great deal of educational tools and materials at their disposal, which greatly assist them in practicing the Montessori Method. These materials allow the students to work both indepedently and in teams to solve problems with limited assistance from the teachers. In this way, the students develop their own self-sufficiency, creativity, and teamwork skills.
