In order to give continuity to our educational model, the academic program in Elementary workshops at Humane school, has its main foundation on the philosophy and methodology created by Dr. Maria Montessori, which proposes the natural development of the child’s abilities through observation and work.
The English program methodology comes from Dr. Giorgi Lozanov, which proposes the development of the child’s cognitive abilities through the stimulation of the senses.
These innovative proposals awaken and promote the interest, as well as, the child’s enthusiasm to learn, increasing his/her creativity and facilitating comprehension, In such way that the acquired knowledge is real and, thus, applicable to his/her daily chores.
Our model is designed for reduced groups (maximum 13 kids per guide, average).Giving more personalized attention to the student as an added benefit. The learning / teaching process is guided by professional experts, who guide the children based on the respect of their individuality, discipline, empathy, affection and patience, which are fundamental elements for a better growth of the child.
