Center Number: 19009804
Our project was born from the need to find a place where all children can make decisions and unleash their full potential.
We use various methodologies and active pedagogies, choosing the one that most enriches the space according to the interests of each child. For example: Montessori, Waldorf, Pickler, Creative Education, Neuroscience, etc...
We like to leave the classrooms and the space to make Forest School once a week, moving to the countryside to spend the day in nature, connect and learn through nature.
Within one of the pedagogies we base the learning by doing creative education workshops, by Arno Stern, where they can create without any judgment or expectations, doing the activity without any purpose or objective, other than personal experience and the drift of each one. There are workshops of configuration (construction with cardboard), painting, movement (free movement with fabrics and world music).
Within the school we do not separate by age in each stage. Although we have three rooms defined as Infant, Transition and Primary, children share activities and are grouped by interests and not always by chronological or maturity ages.
The transition room is designed for those children who, although they are chronologically old enough to be in a primary room, do not yet feel ready for the work involved in these more advanced ages, and may decide to be in the infant or primary room during the day depending on the activities to be carried out or their interests. In any case, in each room all the processes of each child are accompanied in an individualized way.
We are a small school, where coherence between school and family is fundamental, maintaining good communication between the two parties.
Our curriculum is oriented to the holistic/integral development of the child from the principle of self-regulation and based on the skills of the 21st century, which include abilities, skills and learning dispositions that have been identified as necessary for success in society.
These are very important skills for students to master in order to be prepared for success in an ever-changing society. We do not want to fill children's heads with knowledge that has no connection to real life, but to develop their individual capacities, to be creative, critical, self-confident, empathetic, open-minded, team players, leaders, etc...
Apita is the result of hard work and respect towards children where our main objective is their well being.
Our schedule is from 9:00 to 14:00 (with the possibility of extension from 8:30 to 16:00).
