Unidad Educativa Particular de La Inmaculada, located in Ambato (Tungurahua Province), is managed by the Sisters of the Divine Providence, a congregation established in 1767 by Blessed Jean-Martin Moyë (1730-1793, blessed on 21 November 1954 by Pope Pius XII). The Sisters of the Divine Providence founded their first school in Ambato in 1881. Colegio de La Providencia, approved by Resolution No. 218 of 4 October 1941, was renamed Colegio de La Inmaculada in 1963.
