What We Do?
We educate children from babies up to 5 years old using active Peruvian-European methodology. Taking the functional educative methodology from Peru and incorporating the model of nurseries in Europe in which the infant is the builder of his own learning through early years stimulation, routines and play. Taking as a pedagogical model “Maria Montessori” and “Rosa Sensat” and their slogan “Learning through play”. All our staff are highly trained to guarantee the quality of the education we provide. We take care of our materials and try to incorporate natural material, due to Pequeñas Semillas pledge to sustainability and to transmit to the infants and their families values towards their surroundings. We organise day trips and visits to make the learning experience more significant.
We are the winners of the regional Green Flag award 2016, recognising our environmental projects of composting, recycling and planting beds. We have facilitated the promotion of hundreds of happy children and parents from Pequeñas Semillas nursery, children prepared for life and at an optimal level to pass to first grade.
