When children first arrive in our school, they find a warm environment where they feel protected and accompanied by their teachers. This fact will foster the affective links that are fundamental to acquire future knowledge and face new changes in the future.
We offer a calm, welcoming and encouraging atmosphere in which children can acquire autonomy and start exploring and developing their motor skills.
Our main goal is for students to feel they are accompanied, cared for and safe, creating an atmosphere where they start to know themselves and their capabilities. Through pleasant learning experiences, teachers will also offer them stimulating dynamics to foster interaction with other classmates and our surroundings.
