LE PETIT NIDO (0–24 months)

Our curriculum was developed after intense observation of how children learn. Nido teachers are trained to be observers. They monitor every child, and give individual attention, adapting the activities to a child’s development and progress. We focus on children’s senses and ability to stand upright, paying close attention to their psychological and physical comfort.

Typical Day

We create a warm “home-like”setting, – sleeping area, dining area, toilets and playroom – allowing children to make strong familiar connections and build fixed reference points.

As baby grows and shows signs of readiness, we have stations designed to encourage them to roll over, sit, crawl, stand up on their own, and walk.  This helps baby develop gross motor skills.

At Le Nido/El Nido, we foster social skills by having babies in constant contact with each other and their teacher.  Our babies eat lunch seated at the table with other children their age so they can interact.

With us a child also builds logical concepts: stacking blocks, doing puzzles and using toys to learn tools adapted to their force and evolution.

Meals

At first baby is fed by their teacher.  Once they are able they tak meals at the table with other children their age. Mealtime is a great time to learn about sharing, relaxation, holding utensils properly and experiencing new healthy foods.

 

Downtime & Sleep

A child’s autonomy is a key value at Living the Language. At Le Nido/El Nido there is a separate sleeping space for children with floor beds that are open at one end to allow free access. Baby can get in and out of their beds as they wish throughout the day according to their sleeping needs.
