Our classrooms become a second educator by accompanying the level of autonomy and learning that each child requires.

Classroom Corners are environments designed for children to play in and experiment while using materials that, on the one hand, arouse their curiosity and, on the other hand, lead them to fully enjoy their natural instinct for discovery. Behind each corner and each material, there is an educational purpose that the child lives and integrates from the game, the relationship with peers and the support of the adult.

A classroom designed for children aged between 4 months to a year must attend the children’s motor and sensory areas. We work with soft spaces, specific furniture and with ‘Treasure Baskets’, where there are different materials that spark the first discoveries and the stimulation of all senses.

For 1 to 2 year olds, these spaces begin to respond to the need for more movement and we incorporate heuristic proposals, which require more motor coordination. We also encourage the work of eye-hand coordination and fine motor skills through specific corners of manual ability.

For 2 to 3 year olds, symbolic play, ‘Mini-Worlds’, constructions, etc., become more relevant. We still have a soft corner, but only for the girls and boys to find a place to relax and be able to manipulate the picture books and stories.
