Little People International Nursery and School
Accredited British Center
Little People International Nursery and School is a British curriculum school for girls and boys from any country aged 16 months to 6 year of age. The school was founded to provide a small, privately run infant/ primary School with a dedicated and qualified team of native English and bilingual (English and Spanish) speaking teachers in order for the children to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum (EYFS) and National Curriculum for England and Wales (KS1 year 1 )and prepares its pupils for further education and transitions into both Spanish and other international schools.
The school values both the academic and social development of each pupil through individual attention in low teacher- child ratio classrooms guided by experienced native British teachers. We also offer children with a Phonics programme from the age of 16 months to help them communicate and build foundations for good reading in the future, these phonics sessions are taught daily by two teachers specialised in phonics resulting in bilingual children able to read and write in both languages by the age of 6.
The school is divided into classes according to the age. The aim is to keep class sizes small in order to be able to give individual and personalised attention to each child.
Situated in a beautiful country villa and surrounded by 1000 square metres of gardens including a growing garden , our children benefit from an exceptional learning environment.Anabel Corral Granados
