Pre-school Stage

Adaptation period

Love and affective security are the basis of all learning. This security is first built through the careful process of adaptation. For all these reasons, the adaptation periods usually last two weeks in Pre-school stage, being adaptable to exceptions as a result of the personal needs that the child may have.

Daily life at school

Facing the fervent curiosity of the child, we understand that it is necessary to favor this virtue and support its activity, enriching the spaces and allowing the child to come into contact with everything that is necessary for his/her development. This attitude of complacency and interest of the adult will motivate the child to fully enjoy his/her discoveries.

Accompanying
dynamics

In the Pre-School stage, the children come together in groups based on their evolutionary moment, needs and type of play. In this way, there will be a teacher who will tutor a group of children, taking charge of their monitoring and design of learning dynamics and proposals based on the observed interests and needs. We will organize our activities on a daily basis giving special prominence to exploration and movement and free and spontaneous play in different spaces, while we organize workshops and learning experiences designed and dedicated for each group/interest in particular.

How does learning occur?

In Pre-School, learning is mainly through four game options:

Free play

Exploration of the prepared rooms and environments.

Provocations

itinerant and temporary installations as a provocation to exploration and creativity based on play and free movement.

Projects

Introduction to this methodology, simple and adapted to children’s age.

Workshops

Guided proposals based on their interests/needs.
