The Early Childhood Education

The early years of a child’s life are the foundation that shapes the child’s future growth, development and learning achievements not only in school, but in the family and community. The main personality traits are formed at this stage and children learn more rapidly during these years than at any other stage in life. 

Children at this age acquire knowledge through their senses and learn best by experimentation, exploration and observation.

Early Childhood Education

In Early Childhood Education, the family-school partnership is essential and has considerable influence in the children’s developmental processes. Connected to the Units of Inquiry, the work is organized in six areas of knowledge: Personal Identity and Autonomy; Oral and Written Languages; Science, Nature and Society; Mathematics; Arts: Visual Art, Music and Drama; and Body and Movement.
