Nursery – This caters to children from 3½ to 4 years old. In this introductory level, scholastic activities that promote social adjustment toward social development is the main thrust. The approach is Montessori in nature, based from the philosophy of Maria Montessori, the proponent of Montessori Education.
Junior Kindergarten / Jr. Casa – This level has a concentration of 4 to 5½ year old children. At this stage, emphasis is toward “growing and developing” rather than in “knowing”.
