Joana Monteiro | Interim Head of Preschool
WELCOME TO ST. PETER’S INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL.
Throughout early childhood, the environments in which children live and learn, as well as the quality of their relationships with adults, have a significant impact on their development. Because this is a period of great neuronal plasticity and the child is more susceptible to external influences, early experiences will influence their brain and global development and, consequently, the nature and extent of their adult capacities.
In Kindergarten, we develop our action by bringing together the various pedagogical orientations, leading the child to a harmonious physical, cognitive, social, linguistic and emotional development. This development is achieved by promoting active learning experiences with educational intent, through the senses, social interaction, research and experimentation, questioning and exploration, all whilst valuing and respecting the individual characteristics of each child, as well as their interests and needs.
