Created by Sotogrande International School, our philosophy at Fundamentals is to enable children to grow and develop in a healthy, happy and stimulating learning environment. We create exciting, fun, educational activities and family workshops so our little ones can play, learn, explore the great outdoors and develop a strong sense of self and a wide skill set which lays the best foundation for future learning.

When your little one starts the learning journey with us we will work with you to make the transition a smooth and happy time. Creating strong bonds and a setting that feels like home. Education and development are important, but we know that nothing matters more than the safety, security and the health of your child.

Inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy of early childhood education, Fundamentals embraces this concept as it fosters independence, self-help skills and creativity. Teachers place great emphasis on using materials and activities that provoke investigation and group learning. Parents are also encouraged to be actively involved in all aspects of the Nursery and their children’s learning process.

FROM BABIES TO LITTLE ADVENTURERS

Babies

From 4 months your baby will be guaranteed to enjoy a healthy, peaceful and fun atmosphere. They will be showered with
affection, love and tenderness to begin an inspirational, fulfilling learning journey.

Toddlers

Our toddlers are active, energetic and curious, who love to explore the class and play freely in our outdoor garden under the watchful eyes of our teachers.
Children are encouraged to participate in a variety of expressive activities. They are involved in environments that foster their creativity.

Starters

Now the children are over 2, the teachers inspire learning through practical workshops to allow them to experiment with all their senses.

Beginners

Working in big and small groups they are motivated to work in projects.
We provide positive and fun learning experiences for our children, included special themes and other activities that teach basic concepts: colours, shapes, numbers, letters and language skills.
Through games, art, songs, poems, books, children’s literature and activities, our children learn and grow at their own pace.

EXCURSIONS

During the year, as part of our units of inquiry, older groups of children will be involved in excursions in and around the local area. These play an important part in enabling the children to make connections between their learning and the real world.
