EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION 0 - 6 YEARS.
The beginning of school life is a big step in the lives of children.
The stage of initiation and discovery
During this first stage, boys and girls develop their own identity through acceptance and trust, adapting to the group and learning to share, communicate, respect, enjoy, etc.
Early childhood education (EI) must be developed through personal attention and play to stimulate early learning.
We understand Early Childhood Education as a stage that must be developed in a space designed and organized to make it a happy experience, a place of relationships between children, families and educators.
A space in which it is possible to be a person, learning to share, exchange, accompany, learn, respect, tolerate, communicate, love, enjoy, show solidarity...
We stimulate the various areas of learning, adapting to the needs of each child to offer personalised educational and personal development.
We promote the children's' participation in workshops and assemblies, educating them on responsibility and teamwork so that they can learn to be organised and autonomous. We develop communication through multilingual learning as of the first cycle, and we promote the use of new technologies to bring social reality closer to the classroom. We guide each child in the process of initiating a religious awakening, enhancing their intrapersonal, interpersonal and spiritual intelligence.
We carry out our work in an innovative way, with professionals in continuous training and reflection, to offer a high standard of education that adapts to the needs of each person.
Our team includes specialists in English, music, psychomotor skills, plastic arts, infant massage, Emmi Pikler pedagogy, art, etc.

We also have an orientation department and a Youth Ministry team.

We offer a family school to maintain an open communication channel aimed at the parents of the children. We give families the possibility to participate in the centre and in the school life of their children, as well as to efficiently expand the acquisition of new resources through this channel, adding value in the form of knowledge, information and useful guidance for the education of all our students. For this purpose, we organize workshops and meetings related to the 8 lines of educational development with the objecting of offering a comprehensive education.
Como bien dice Francesco Tonucci, 25k de barro sería un magnífico juguete para las niñas y los niños
Our infants are currently making drawings, in principle non-representational, serenely carrying out a wholesome play activity fornwhich all children have a natural propensity.
The boys and girls of HH 2 could enjoy the artwork BILBAO CIRCLE by Richar Long.
Early education students have learned a lot about the characteristics of food, its taste, and which foods are most beneficial for our health. We learned to shop for fresh and seasonal produce.
We discovered a wonderful forest, made leaf piles and had a great time learning about local sights. We took part in two workshops: one was called "Without going very far", and the other was called "The hidden treasures of the forest".
This morning we went out to play for a while, and then we went to Ekogune, where we learned how to plant and fertilize seedlings, and tasted mint, which we love! Enjoying the good weather and Ekogune.
