    • Spanish Immersion

      Immersion in another language is one of the greatest gifts you can give a preschooler. It’s the most effective way to achieve childhood bilingualism and studies have shown huge cognitive, social and emotional advantages for bilingual children.

      The exceptional bonds between children, families and staff are our proudest product at Bonitots! From our “emotions box” to our “time ins”, every part of our approach nurtures children’s optimal emotional development. We cherish individuality!

      Our approach takes the best of the available methodologies, from Montessori and Reggio Emilia to the Curiosity Approach and Loose Parts Theory, and combines them to create a hybrid approach that nurtures every child’s unique quirks.

    • Music

      Research shows that early music exposure has cognitive and emotional benefits for children. Our ambitious music programme includes free early piano lessons, weekly world music sessions, Spanish rhyme time and live music sessions in the setting.

    • Home-from-Home

      Our baby and toddler zone is a home-from-home haven, replete with home comforts, sofas, cosy spaces, a sensory zone and plenty of opportunity for exploratory climbing and discovery for our youngest children to enjoy with their carers.

    • Psicomotricidad

      “Psicomotricidad” is considered a hugely important area of learning in Spain. Practitioners create gross motor challenges carefully designed to develop cognitive abilities and gross and fine motor skills through movement around and through obstacles.
