Welcome Message from Head of Pre-School

Catarina Simão | Preschool Coordinator

Welcome to St. Peter’s International School.

Early childhood is a fundamental stage of children’s lives, the first years being particularly important for their physical, intellectual and emotional development. In nursery school and kindergarten at St. Peter’s International School, we have developed our pedagogical approach, bringing together the best practices from various methods, always based on education for values and affection. It is our priority to create a personalized environment for our children and their families, in a perspective of acceptance and respect for the individual development of each child.

Establishing positive interaction, creating a stable, organized and at the same time flexible routine, are the main strategies in the development of our curriculum. Individualized teaching, daily English language lessons since nursery, together with our Learning to Art project are undoubtedly some of the strengths of our educational provision.

We believe that parents are essential partners of our school, in the integral development of the child and therefore, at St. Peter’s International School, we encourage the relationship between the family and the school. Parental involvement in their children’s education is both a right, as well as a responsibility and a principle.

We believe that education should, from an early age, guide children towards becoming the true protagonists of their lives and asserting themselves as dignified, aware and active citizens, developing their potential and necessary skills in order to be independent, supportive and happy.
