The International School Nido de Aguilas

Early Years School

“The paradoxical goal of raising children is that we hold them close so that they have the confidence to move away from us.”

The Early Years School at Nido offers a child-centered and play-based program for three- to six-year-olds. We focus on providing a safe and nurturing environment where your children can explore the early stages of learning that will be key to their future. We support young learners in developing their language, literacy, math, science, and social emotional skills. We foster inquiry skills, as well as build learners’ capacity to learn collaboratively inside and outside the classroom. The EYS encourages students’ independence and confidence. This allows them to build an understanding of oneself as a learner, including how they learn best.

We believe in and encourage parent involvement; parents are our students’ first teachers in life. We work in partnership with families to offer the highest quality of early childhood education for all learners, differentiating according to the various needs of the individual. Our teachers and administrators communicate regularly with parents to build a strong community within the EYS.

I look forward to a year of nurturing the strengths and passions of your children and providing authentic hands-on experiences for optimal learning.
