On April 10 1961, the first three nursery schools (círculos infantiles) were opened in Cuba, an the initiative of Fidel Castro, and Vilma Espín as president of the Federation of Cuban Women. The first three circulos to open in Havana - Camilo Cienfuegos, Ciro Frías and Fulgencio Oroz - celebrate their 60th birthdays today.
Many Cuban nursuries have remained open during the pandemic to provide safe spaces for young children. CubaDebate celebrated the anniversary with recent pictures from the Flor de la Amistad nursery school, in the Cerro municipality of Havana.
