The Preschool stage is the basis for all the educational stages at our international school. In this phase we lay the foundations for all learning. At this young age, the children are yet to “set” their systems: early stimulation helps their growth and favours the multiplication of brain cell connections. At Agora Lledó International School our very youngest pupils receive all the love, care and support of their educators and specialists who work to ensure that they are happy and have fun learning. We contribute to the development of all their intelligences through emotions.
As an applicant centre for the International Baccalaureate Primary School (PYP) Program, our goal is to teach students who, from an early age, are imaginative, curious, capable and active. That is why we work in indoor and outdoor environments, with an emphasis on play, exploration, active and creative learning and stimulating critical thinking.
In this cycle, play takes the centre stage. Through play, the children receive a comprehensive programme of early stimulation which includes swimming, psychomotricity, English, Bits of Intelligence, music, mathematical games and art sessions… All of this is possible thanks to the high level of care offered by our staff, who ensure that all of the children’s basic needs are taken care of (food, hygiene, rest…), as well as their professional and personal interaction with both the pupils and their families.
At the age of three, the children begin our English-Spanish bilingual programme. 50% of their classes are in English (conversation, literacy, science, arts and crafts, IT) and the other 50% are in Spanish (literacy, maths, music, swimming and P.E). To work on pupils’ motor development they have psychomotricity classes as well as PE lessons (judo, football, basketball, dance…), which foster the correct development of a healthy body. They are also introduced to the world of music with the help of music teachers who specialise in working with children of this age.
Both our teachers and the families of our pupils count on the full support of our Guidance Department at all times.
“The children at our school radiate happiness. Mine are still small but they have learnt a lot and are getting on really well. They show a great deal of respect and love for their teachers and are obviously taught respect and how to behave in the classroom.”
“Working at this school I feel fulfilled while doing what I most like to do, look after and teach Preschool children. I grow day by day on a professional and personal level as I learn from them just as they learn from me. It is heart warming to have pupils who give back as much affection as you give them!”
