Based on the idea of a Montessori environment, our facilities are designed so that the children learn to handle things in a safe environment, allowing them to grow, learn and develop in a comprehensive manner. Each classroom has an iMac computer on which the children work under the supervision of their Montessori guide.
In Children’s House, there is also a multipurpose room where artistic activities, such as music and art, are carried out.
We have two Oral English rooms and a library that the children visit regularly where we encourage participation in a reading club. This year they reached the hallmark of having read 1,000 books.
At the Pedregal campus, we are committed to carrying out, in an appropriate and responsible manner, all the activities that children need for their physical and emotional development. From Pre-First to 6th grade of Elementary School, each group contain a maximum of 25 students.
As a means of supporting the emotional development of the children, we hold an emotions workshop where they learn to express their feelings and they work on how to show them. Theater classes and science lab are also offered. In the latter, experiments are carried out that involve the use of the scientific method and students are shown how this can be incorporated into their daily lives.
Through creativity, humans show their emotions, feelings and knowledge, providing different perspectives on the same idea. At the Pedregal campus, we believe it is very important to provide students with the tools to do this through artistic activities that encourage comprehensive development. For this, we have rooms that provide the space and the equipment needed.
The teaching and administrative staff at the campus is constantly training in order to incorporate new teaching strategies into their activities to further significant learning in children.
