Our School

We stand for Associació Pedagògica La Vila, a non-for-profit entity established in the area for 10 years. We keep a constant collaboration with the Vila Olímpica Neighbours Association, the shopkeepers Association and we are members of the Educational City Project (PEDC in Catalan). The kindergarten Chiqui La Vila is managed by APLa Vila and is subsidised by the Catalan government. It is a nursery school for children between 0 and 3 years old. We aspire to be an alternative to traditional schooling, and offer a judgement-free, friendly and respectful follow-up. We are focused on a lively and active education that puts the child at the centre of their own progressive evolution. We are aware that it is essential to remain within the legal frame of our territory, with all due official health, fire (ECA) and education licences (code given by the Catalan Education Department:0868112).

We have the Healthy Life Seal granted by Education, Culture and Sports Ministry, for promotions of the healthy health and life that we make in the educational field. We place particular emphasis on the habits of hygiene, slepp, food, affection and permanent discovery of the immense possibilitties that our body offers us.

An outstanding educational project


Our project unifies and integrates the results of the latest research about brain functioning and development with the best didactic tools. Between 0 and 3 years old, children learn about what moves and surprises them, they learn more than in any other period of life. The quantity and quality of their learning will mostly depend on the capacity of the environment to match their basic needs as well as their neurological needs.


WHY ARE EMOTIONS SO IMPORTANT?

We know how essential it is for a very young child to feel sheltered and loved, and this definitely is our main goal.

SAFETY AND HEALTH: OUR MAIN PRIORITIES

We follow the guidelines provided by the “Stretch-n-Grow” program that facilitates the acquisition of healthy habits with songs, stories and dynamic games.

Our menus are carefully elaborated by nutritionists and our diet takes into consideration everyone’s need. This way, we are able to favour a healthy diet from the very beginning. We introduce new recipes and food according to the needs of every child.

We believe that every moment of the day may provide education and we especially care about those repetitive moments that are so emotionally important due to their emotional charge: hygiene, food, rest...

WE GROW TOGETHER

Thanks to a continuous training and research in our educational field we are able to integrate include neuropedagogy and emotion. BECAUSE THERE IS NO LEARNING WITHOUT EMOTIONS.

Our psychopedagogical area investigates and introduces ceaseless improvement within the Educational Project. Our practise is therefore based on and inspired by the most accredited investigations, specialized conferences lectures as well as on and our professional experience.

RESPECT TO UNIQUENESS AND CREATIVITY

We enjoy and learn from diversity and we are well aware that every child has her/his own personality and rhythm to evolve, create and feel. On a daily basis we focus on promoting atmosphere and activities that stimulate experience, discovery and relationship…in order to give creative answers to everyday situations.

METHODOLOGY: NEURO-PEDAGOGY

Our work method integrates and expands the most relevant psycho-pedagogical key components of pre-school education, combined with the contribution of the results of the latest investigations in other scientific fields, such as neurology.

We implement an active, playful, participative, experimental methodology, that takes into account what every child is interested in according to her/his age with full respect for every individual learning rhythm.
