If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance,They learn to be patient.
If children live with praise, they learn to appreciate.
If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
If children live with honesty, They learn truthfulness.
If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves and others.

We are divided mainly into two groups:
Bebeteca Workshop – from 4 to 18 months old.
Pequeteca Workshop – from 18 to 36 months old
Early childhood is now more commonly recognized for the crucial time in a child’s life. A time when basic attitudes are developed about learning, social matters and self. Each student acts much like a sponge, absorbing the influences of his/her environment. In order to be calm, happy and well-adjusted, students need to explore, discover, and touch. They need order in their universe and want to master the movements of their own bodies.
For these two groups we create a warm and caring enviroment, similar to home where above all, respect and love are primary keys. Our main areas for teaching are:
Playing is a fully functional biological mechanism; It allows the child to experiment with his body (sensations, coordination, physical limits) and the objects around them (textures, weights, sizes, smells, tastes, temperature, resistance). Thanks to playing, every human being assimilates the outside world while accommodating the inner world.
A natural environment is the healthiest we can offer our children. Our project has a large gardens, where we can provide space for games, areas for gardening & various environmental projects, a space for growing an orchard, and all the gardens for the study of plants, animals, and crops.
We use our garden as a teaching tool and as a practical model of relations between human beings and nature. A way to live with and experience nature. To feel close to nature, learn to value and respect, understand and experience, weather at home or at school. To encourage a healthy understanding, healthy eating habits, and ahealthy outdoor lifestyles – all through creative development!
Music has a power that goes beyond words. The pleasure of sharing music creates connections between people. The sounds and rhythms around a child fills their world with sensations and feelings. Music also offers a pleasant and rewarding learning experience and feeds the imagination and creativity of children.
