Our main goal is to form children that know how to think, that when facing daily living situations they have enough tools to solve them by being resourceful, creative, agile and confident.
We want the castle feel like home to the children. In this warm caring and welcoming space equipped to respond to all children's needs, sensorial physiological and social experiences will be stimulated and enlarge to develop the child's potential in a natural, safe and independent way through the practical life, sensorial area, botanic and zoology, languages, math, art and music.
In addition to completing the curriculum, we have created the ENRICHMENT PROGRAM which will consist of a different daily activity ignored to stimulate and keep developing their artistic and social capabilities. This activity will take place every day for 45 min duration. As a result, children can enjoy an introduction to musical, languages, arts and craft, yoga, dance, psychomotricity and cooking.
How we develop this?
In The Castle, we have an annual Topic Program where we start on a macro scale (Universe) and finish in micro (ourselves). The entire school will enjoy the same monthly topic in their own range of development. Every group will have different academic goals through a fantastic journey. We teach children how to make connections. Each month is connected with the previous and following one, giving the child a logical vision of the program’s progress and, therefore, promoting connection between one topic or event and the other. This provides the most important tool in the problem-solving process: Process awareness.
