TINY PEOPLE, READY
FOR THE FUTURE.

Tiny People is a benchmark school specializing in bilingual early childhood education. Here. each child and family are seen as unique and have differentiated care and attention.

Tiny People’s mission is to develop independent and responsible individuals who are driven and motivated and who know how to respect themselves, their neighbours and nature.

Our philosophy is to provide children with education for life in a multicultural environment in which they have the opportunity to develop their skills in every area of knowledge, both in English and Portuguese.

RESPONSIBILITY, RESPECT AND SENSITIVITY are the three values that underlie and underpin our educational practice.
Welcoming and valuing individuality are priorities in an educational, safe and affective space. The children participate in various learning situations that will help them develop their ability to solve problems, establish relationships and acquire knowledge, skills, attitudes and values. All this care aims to ensure an education of excellence that enables the full development of our students.

PSYCHOMOTRICITY

Body awareness and psychomotor development are key issues in the global growth of all children. Therefore, at Tiny People we pay special attention to this area of development with activities that seek to improve their perceptual-motor skills, build a positive self-image, and consequently promote favorable interpersonal relationships.

SPANISH

Tiny People offers Spanish lessons as part of its curriculum. From Tiny 4 on, our students begin their contact with the Spanish language in weekly classes with a specialist teacher and have the opportunity to gradually learn a third language and other cultures.

STEAM

Children born in the 21st century are expected to lead the world using new resources and skills that are different from those currently in use.

Tiny People's projects and sequences are embedded with STEAM. STEAM is an approach to education that explores science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics topics in order to develop soft skills such as critical thinking and problem solving, communication and collaboration, creativity and innovation, resilience and flexibility, among others. We provide opportunities for each child to develop such skills and be better able to cope with the different challenges and experiences throughout their lives.

INTERNATIONAL PARTNERSHIPS

Tiny People has 2 partner schools in London. This relationship promotes the exchange of experience and educational practices, which further enrich our school context.
