Siesta - Itaca Nova nursery school


So as to be able to enjoy themselves fully when taking part in class activities, the children need moments when they can rest and sleep. As we are well aware of the importance of adequate rest for the children, they have an after lunch nap in a relaxing and secure environment.

Educational activities

Development of logical-mathematical thinking

Is encouraged by the use of:

  • Logical reasoning games.
  • The treasure basket.
  • Heuristic play.
  • Experiment trays.


  • The stimulation of language and communication skills.
  • Sensory stimulation activities.
  • Projects for the development of plastic and musical language.
  • The children develop the idea of learning to control theiremotions in an environment of emotional and physical security, where the children feel loved, appreciated and gain the confidence to confront the challenges that they will face. Our idea is that they establish a personal relationship with all our team, building affective links that enable them to have sufficient self-confidence to progress in this stage of learning.

Facilitating personal autonomy

  • As children begin to develop motor and linguistic skills, we can begin to involve them increasingly in their own personal care and hygiene needs.
  • Feeding, personal hygiene and rest periods are all activities that if made attractive to the child’s sense of play.

Psychomotor activities

Psychomotor skill learning at the centre is in line with the work of Bernard Aucoutourier, and the experiences of the Lóczy Institute and their team, specialists in psychomotor development.

Complementary activities


The children learn English using a participatory and playful teaching strategy, designed and implemented by a highly experienced native teacher.


It is a first approach to music through joyful musical experiences proposed by the professionals of Songs for Matilda.

July summer workshop

During the month of July, we offer children a variety of workshops with original and fun proposals (water games, art and recycling, massages and storytelling…).
