Early Childhood Education is a stage that contributes to the emotional and effective, physical and motor, social, and cognitive development of boys and girls in collaboration with families. In this environment, we provide children with a climate of trust in which they feel welcomed to grow and learn.

Structure of the infant stage.

This stage is divided in two cycles:

  • 1st cycle: Covers ages from 0 to 3 years, also referred to as nursery or daycare.
  • 2nd cycle: Spans from 3 to 6 years, and it is known as preschool.

Both cycles are closely linked, maintaining a relationship of coherence and continuity that provides children with an educational environment completing the experiences they have in their family context.

School organization

In the 1st cycle of kindergarten, the school period is between the months of September and July, both inclusive.

In the 2nd cycle of early childhood education, following the mandatory school calendar, the acadèmic year starts in September and concludes in June.


  • 1st cycle: 9:00 – 17:00
  • 2nd Cycle: 9:00 – 17:00
