    We went to see the little Prince, an inclusive work marked in staff Chilean language. The very comfortable place. Happy those free cultural spaces are given.

    Great attention on the part of all staff, I love to attend, the only problem is that I don't like people to eat with the children in the children's room, they are very dirty, all excellent. I love it!!
