Infant School Education Project

Discovering one’s own emotions and talents.

Our educational project for Infant School

The student at the core

We stimulate their curiosity to know and understand what is happening in their environment and to themselves.

We encourage their creativity. We encourage giving alternative answers, developing new ideas and finding solutions in everyday situations. We become aware that we are part of different environments, ranging from the immediate environment to the world.

We encourage a critical approach. We question and rationalise what is going on around us. We express opinions while respecting arguments that do not match our own.

We begin to understand responsibility. We recognise and manage our own emotions and welcome and accompany those of others. We gain autonomy. We confront the minor challenges of everyday life. We develop our capacities to the maximum and learn to ask for help when we need it. We incorporate values such as gratitude, fairness and respect as the cornerstones of personal and social development.

Our programmes and projects

Learning nodes

The nodes are culturally significant thematic cores that respond to the self and others, world and society, and strengths.

We organise these spaces according to levels and inter-levels. We define ourselves as communities and engage in peer learning.

We follow the educational sequence: Prompt - Ask - Investigate - Apply - Communicate - Reflect

We work on inclusivity in the classroom naturally.

We encourage openness to the world, interdisciplinary learning based on collective work with the group.

Mathematics project

We approach all the concepts of mathematics from a very early age and using different strategies.

We use a circular curriculum in such a way that each concept is repeated and expanded.

We use games and prior activities within the session to end up with individualised work.


We foster communication between peers and teachers and work on thinking strategies based on oral language.

We highlight values, attitudes and rules, and conflict mediation.

We tell stories, talk about the weekend, incidents, rules, responsibilities and show the murals of the main character. We do pastoral sessions.

Corners and workshops

We encourage autonomy, initiative, freedom, spontaneity, responsibility, experimentation and research.

We strengthen oral expression through symbolic play and the development of scheduled activities.

We facilitate interaction between children, stimulate their creativity and foster learning through the senses and hands-on activities.

We develop the socialisation and individuality of each child.


We integrate the English language into school life.

We focus on oral comprehension: understanding basic instructions, vocabulary and simple structures associated with a context.

We begin with different stories, games, dramatisations and songs backed up by images and hands-on materials.

We set up communicative spaces in English to naturalise this language.

Bagul Magis

We propose a methodology to bring biblical stories to children based on the Montessori method. It enables us to enrich the child’s spirituality from an Ignatian perspective.


On the school premises and during school hours, for all pupils from P3 to Primary Year 6. As an after-school activity for students from P5 to Upper Secondary Year 2.

Spaces for science, experimentation and play

This year we are launching a new laboratory designed for Infant pupils.

A space where experimentation, combined with the teacher's guidance, becomes science.

We present a variety of proposals, and the children learn through trial and error, changes of variables and questions that allow them to think and try again.
