How are we different?

  • Bonitots children have access to the multiple advantages of childhood bilingualism.

  • Bonitots Bilingual Nursery and Pre-School delivers an exceptional Spanish-English curriculum in a unique role play city full of embedded learning opportunities. Our model takes the best elements from the world’s leading educational systems and combines them to form an exceptional preschool environment. And all of this is delivered in our imagination-building miniature role play city: introducing Bonitropolis!

    • 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.

    • Science with Steve

      Our weekly science club, led by Blue Peter scientist and best-selling children’s science author Steve Mould, sees even our youngest children exploring science creatively through exciting, hands-on and interactive experiments. Lab coats at the ready!

    • Miniature city

      Our miniature role play city has learning opportunities embedded throughout, whether it’s crossing the road at the traffic lights or addressing letters to your friends at the post office. A flexible space designed to adapt to children’s interests.

    • Building bonds

      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!

    • 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.

    • Mixed methodologies

      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.

    • 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.
