Grounded in the constructivist pedagogical model, we encourage children to observe, explore, build, create, interact and discover their surroundings.

Starting very young they are encouraged to develop their thinking, motivating them to solve problems, which are forged in during their early years with the IB student profile, laying the basis for future learning.




 In this area that children enjoy the use of language based on songs, rhymes, tongue twisters and riddles. Furthermore, phonological awareness, essential to the process of reading and writing in their education is taught. They also recognize that there is a relationship between spoken and written which they will express using their own codes.

We stimulate and encourage the love of reading based on topics of interest for every age, emphasizing elements of literature and logical sequence of events.




Working with concrete materials that lead students to experience the conservation of quantity, patterns, series, and etc. foundations to develop pre-math skills and reach the reasoning to problems that are presented on daily basis.




Being in touch with nature and social environment is necessary for their development and to be part of the surrounding environment, which must be followed under certain guidelines and rules that contribute to harmonious coexistence.




The student is encouraged to employ various graph-plastic techniques to express themselves freely and enjoy painting. In addition, they are invited to recognize the tones, rhythms leading to improve their skills of communication and coordination, to develop their memory skills, concentration and attention.




Children come into contact with English in this level and they do it through songs, rhymes, stories, projects and other activities, leading to increase their vocabulary and use of words used in the development of sentences in their oral expression. Phonological awareness that indirectly leads them to decode without the key objective, since it has internalized in a natural way and their brain has received linguistic stimuli that lead to understanding of what is said in English and are also encouraged to start  and to generate correct answers.
