In December 2009, Foundation 4Life began funding a preschool program at La Casa Rosada for children ages 3–5. This marks the first time a formalized preschool has been established at the orphanage. This very structured program offers early education and social behavior instruction to better prepare the children for the early years of elementary school. Part of the Foundation 4Life sponsorship provides for a teacher who specializes in the Montessori method of instruction. New furniture and teaching materials were purchased to insure proper teaching techniques that would add to the structure of the program. The old cafeteria was converted into a preschool room to give the children dedicated space in which to focus and learn properly without the distractions of other activities going on in the orphanage.
