Pedagogy at School
The nursery school becomes for the little boy the bridge between his home and the big world, for this reason we create a homely atmosphere, cozy and cheerful, where the child can feel safe and be active, where, at their own pace, can deploy the capabilities that live in it.
The young child is very sensitive to what is happening in his environment, is highly open to sensory impressions received from the environment and the people around him. For this reason, we take special care of stimuli, the spaces, the furniture, the colors and sounds that surround the child offering healthy impressions and a warm encounter with other children and adults.
The teacher gives the children individual attention. Through observation and a close relationship you can respond to the needs of each one, offering, through your example, guide in the game and in the activities of the day.
We provide children with time, space, activities and materials suitable for the development of your whole being, physical development, psychological-psychic, social e individual. We promote the establishment of healthy habits regarding food, hygiene, the autonomy…
We consider of great importance the collaboration of parents and teachers in the educational process of the child so that there is coherence in what the child lives at home and at school. We hold meetings with parents in the classrooms to discuss pedagogical issues and practical matters and we also regularly meet families individually.
