Preschool life is a joyful and pleasant experience where girls find the right space for their needs with expert professionals who support their creativity, cognitive, physical, and social-emotional development. Teaching practices are based on the principles of active learning, considering that mistakes are a learning opportunity and in which developmental stages are considered. Artistic and recreational activities are offered to promote intellectual development, cultural diversity, physical activity, creativity, and artistic expression. Students work on projects in a bilingual environment.
