The main goal of Nausica in the early childhood education stage is for children to be the protagonists of their progress and learning from the first moment they arrive at school.
The second key stage of early childhood education is from 3 to 6 years old. At this stage, we want to contribute to the emotional and affective, physical and motor, social and cognitive development of students. In an environment of trust, welcoming and with favorable conditions for their fully academic development.
What do we want Early Childhood Education students to learn at Escola Nausica?
To be and act autonomously, both personally and academically.
To let them learn to think and communicate in different languages.
That they develop the capacity to discover and to have initiative.
To have students feed their curiosity and find answers to their questions.
In children of these ages, work begins on the basics that will help them throughout their personal and school lives. For this reason, the educational methodologies and learning tools used at this stage of education are key to their success.
“All the most important lessons in life are made by playing in the first stage of life.”
– Franceso Tonucci
At Nausica we use different educational working methodologies with a global vision in order to help students to evolve during the first years in their school life. Thus, the educational methodologies used in early childhood education are aimed at working and promoting different areas, both personal and educational, adapted to their needs while being innovative at the same time.
We propose and organise both indoor and outdoor spaces in the school to unify various contexts that are related. To be able to offer a diversity of proposals, quality of stimuli and opportunities to progress.
Active and interactive classes with new technologies.
Experimentation in all educational areas.
Individual and cooperative work.
Acquisition of vocabulary through BITS, songs and games in all three languages: Catalan, Spanish and English.
Shared learning and adapted to the different rhythms of students.
Playing as a means to work on the emotional part, interpersonal relationships and enhance creativity.
Experimentation and manipulation to develop the 5 senses.
