This is the starting point towards children’s autonomy, systematic learning and social integration. Our objective is to develop in our pupils a curious, creative, ecological and thoughtful attitude that will accompany their processes throughout their lives.
We offer a caring, harmonious, appealing and aesthetic environment in a bilingual context, with a wide array of stimuli and challenges and an innovative and playful approach that inspires pupils to create and discover. We offer pupils the stimuli and opportunities to develop the tools they will need throughout their lives, through games and motivating activities that include all the aspects related to growth during the first years, particularly psychomotor development and sensorial integration, social and emotional skills and intellectual, artistic and technological skills that encourage curiosity and free and critical thinking.
As children consolidate their communication skills in their mother tongue, they learn how to do it in English. The purpose is to encourage them so that through games, songs, nursery rhymes, circle time, they joyfully learn English naturally and systematically and develop their skills to their best.
We promote a thoughtful environment and a curious attitude; we teach our pupils to question themselves.
At kindergarten, children learn to think by thinking, to draw by drawing, to calculate by making calculus, to paint by painting. Pupils go through all these experiences in order to acquire the proposed skills.
Our proposal is based on the Reggio Emilia teaching method, the theory of Multiple Intelligences, Early Stimulation, Teaching for Understanding and Visible Thinking. We add knowledge fields as a strategy to enhance the curriculum, such as: emotional education, play and flow, pupil of the week, hands on projects, portfolios, artistic languages, sense and psychomotor experiences.
Play and flow
Learning must be a pleasant activity. To that end we generate moments in which doing, feeling and thinking are intertwined so that children enjoy the activities they engage in and even lose track of time; these moments in which time flows must be respected and are a priority in our kindergarten.
Our pupils participate in the care of vegetable gardens so that in an entertaining way and through experience they acquire key values and knowledge, such as the joy of being in contact with nature, the respect of the environment and the importance of having a healthy diet together with the acquisition of responsibilities and the reinforcement of self-esteem.
Through the EMAT Program, we teach mathematics in an innovative way and within the framework of multiple intelligences. Pupils build strategies that enable them to analyze and solve mathematical situations in a real and practical context. The idea is to guide them in a process that goes from concrete thinking to abstract thinking. To that end we propose strategies that promote different physical, sensorial and social stimuli in order to make children approach mathematical contents in a more stimulating, motivating and accessible way.
