  • Visitors must coordinate in advance to go to school and must go in the company of a school representative. Upon entering, you will need to register. Visitors without prior notice will not be taken care of.
  • Visitors will be taken care of only if someone can accompany them and if the school program is not interrupted.
  • In case of unforeseen events, we reserve the right to cancel a scheduled visit.
  • The school is open from 8:15 a.m. to 1:35 p.m., Monday to Friday, from the beginning of March until mid-December. The half-year break runs from the end of July to the beginning of August and there are other short breaks during the year. The school does not receive visitors during breaks, special school events and field trips. We appreciate your understanding.
  • Ask for permission to take photos/videos when you are at school. If you are given permission, be respectful and remember that photos and videos may not be used for commercial or profit purposes under any circumstances without the consent of the school board of trustees.
  • We do not expect gifts/refreshments, but they are welcome and grateful. If you would like to share gifts/snacks with the school community, please coordinate in advance. Do not give gifts/snacks directly to the children; leave them in the school office and the teachers together with the governing council will decide how and when to distribute them fairly and equitably among the student body (we will tell them who brought the gifts). We suggest bringing healthy snacks (e.g. fruit, nuts, etc.) or natural and thoughtful gifts according to the spirit of Kusi Kawsay. Please do not bring sweets, chewing gum or money for the students.
  • If you’d like to give something that makes a difference, check out how to make a donation to support specific programs or events, or support the Ayni Scholarship Fund.
  • Visitors should not interrupt classes and/or school activities or interact with students unless instructed to do so by a teacher.
  • Kusi Kawsay reserves the right to ask any visitor to leave if their presence is inappropriate or disruptive, in order to protect the environment of students and teachers. We appreciate your understanding and collaboration.
