We are renowned for our early learning and early reading programs, and for our diverse curriculum that focuses strongly on art, music, physical excellence and global citizenship.
There are a total of 11 schools or learning centres operating in Mexico and Latin America using our model. Also, there are a few hundred schools and several thousand students using our approach to reading comprehension and learning to read.
Research has shown that brain plasticity is as it fullest during the first years of life. But for centuries it has been believed that tiny children cannot, and should not, be taught to read. Many have warned us against the perils of teaching a child who is “not ready”. But children are born with brains primed for language. And reading is language. We should begin early, exposing our children to a rich vocabulary within their context, enjoying language. Reading and playing are not opposing terms.
