Panakids was born in 2013, to become an educational project focused on primary education in April 2018. The main objective of our institution is to transform Education into one that responds to the needs of students and parents seeking academic excellence coupled with a strong value scheme. We adapt the National Base Curriculum to our context, integrating the knowledge of the Mayan Worldview, particularly in the thematic of Kaqchikel Mayan Culture and Language with Mestiza culture, which allows us to train citizens for a global world, proud of its roots.
At Panakids we strongly believe that education is key to generate new opportunities and support the youngest generations to strive and succeed with the greatest world challenges. We do so through a comprehensive and flexible pedagogical solution that adapts to each family and acts as a strategic ally of the teaching-learning process.
Panakids is located in Panajachel, on the shores of Lake Atitlán, a very unique place in the world for its richness in culture, traditions, wildlife, and natural breathtaking views. This will give you the chance to experience a different perspective on other people’s life, Guatemalan history, culture, and religion together with real adventuring opportunities.
