Preschool

1-6 years

The purpose of Preschool is to contribute to the sensory, intellectual and affective development of girls and boys. Progressively, attention is given to the development of movement and control habits, to different forms of communication, to language and to elementary patterns of coexistence. Girls and boys are encouraged to develop a positive and balanced self-image and to gain personal autonomy.

For this stage, Fomento has developed the Optimist Project. Its innovative methodology is based on intellectual and sensory stimulation in a playful environment, rich in stimuli that favours the development of girls and boys. Play as an activity of Preschool is the means of learning through which children explore and acquire different learning skills. 

Teaching English, which is conducted through linguistic immersion, occupies 50% of the time and follows the same learning process as that of the mother tongue. In periods dedicated to English, the teacher only uses the English language inside and outside the classroom.
