Preschool is an educational period formed by two stages: the first stage or nursery for 0 to 3-year-olds, and the second stage or kindergarten for 3 to 6-year-olds. This educational period has its own identity and its objective is to contribute to the integral development of the child from an emotional, affective, physical and motor point view, as well as from a social and cognitive one, working hand in hand with their families.
