“Educating young children means providing them with opportunities for active learning. Young children in action develop initiative, curiosity, resourcefulness and self-confidence – dispositions that serve them well throughout their lives.”
HOHMANN, Mary; WEIKART, David P., Educar a Criança (Educating Young Children), Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon (1997).

Our goal is to provide the children with the opportunity to develop harmoniously, in cooperation with their families. This implies meeting the basic need for the children’s development. On the other hand, we want the parents to have an alternative, to leave their children with someone that supports their education, knowing that they will be taken care of by people who have the necessary human and technical abilities.
