Early Years

INTRODUCTION

During the  Early Childhood Stage, children experience remarkable psychomotor, cognitive, personal, social, and moral development, as well as significant progress in language acquisition. For this reason, the teachers at our centre follow this development closely in order to adapt their educational action to the developmental changes that occur in children.This allows teachers to assess the gradual knowledge of the classroom environment and acquire the proper tools to access this knowledge within a warm safe environment.

FAMILY INVOLVEMENT

Family experiences - "My family comes to school"

Kindergarten students enjoy "My family comes to school", a weekly activity that involves parents teaching students about their profession, telling a story, leading arts and crafts and sharing information about traveling. 

By participating the parents learn how teachers work in the classroom and children enjoy an enriching experience that nurtures the relationship between school and family.
