What is our objective?
Our main goal is to form children that know how to think, that when facing daily living situations they have enough tools to solve them; by being resourceful, creative, agile and confident.
How we develop this?
In Aguamarina, we have an Annual Topic Program where we start on a macro scale (Universe) and finish in micro (ourselves). The entire school will enjoy the same monthly topic in their own range of development. Every group will have different academic goals through a fantastic journey. We teach children how to make connections. Each month is connected with the previous and following one, giving the child a logical vision of the program’s progress and, therefore, promoting connection between one topic or event and the other. This provides the most important tool in the problem-solving process: Process awareness.
What is the methodology?
In Aguamarina, each class is an adventure where each child can understand new concepts through experiential activities using the 5 senses which will enable them to have a better comprehension and hold onto concepts easily.
We truly believe that children gain a more profound understanding of concepts by experiencing in both, sensorial and academic ways.
And the Academics:
Aguamarina has its own curriculum where the academic objectives are of the highest standards at preschool level. Each academic area is developed with logic structure. The first two years, we focus on leaving solid foundations to soon after extend them. Each month teachers receive a Planning Book where they will find the program of the month. Inside they will find Math, Language, Writing, Science, Music and Gym, Art and Dramatic play are clearly stated with objectives, methodology to follow and material needed. The Academic Director is on a constant communication with the teachers so they can reach a real understanding of each project and its objectives. In addition, she will accompany and support each child in the learning process.
Passion floats in Aguamarina:
In children we encourage passion for learning! Excitement for exploring and enchantment by discovering and understanding their surroundings.
In the teachers we promote passion for teaching! Aguamarina’s curriculum inspires and motivates to be good human beings, to give their all and to look for each child’s best ability creating citizens that conquer the world!
What characterizes us?
Love, love and more love! We are confident that by giving a warmth environment, where children and parents feel we are their extended family, we will have Happy Hearts, therefore, Big Minds.
In Aguamarina, each family is special, we work as a team Aguamarina and families, reaching each child highest potential and celebrating every achieved goal.
The school’s environment promotes socio-emotional development where we play, share and make friends while we learn to love and respect each other. Values are an essential part of our curriculum, we learn with practical experiences respect, tolerance, generosity among others. We also learn how to identify, name and accept our feelings, be better human beings as well as take care of our planet and animals.
