On 28th September, 1970, Obra das Mães established its first nursery, namely St. John or São João in Portuguese, in honor of Saint John the Baptist. The mission of our nursery is to promote universal love, giving support to children of families with financial difficulties and showing the spirit of social solidarity of Obra das Mães. In 2017, the organization established its fourth nursery in the Campus of Macau University. The São João nursery has 1,219 sq.m. of indoor area. 239 children between the ages of three months and three years can be registered at the nursery. The nursery has 9 activity rooms and 44 employees. Professional teachers, nurses and technical staff oversee daily operations.
