Every parent in the world has always been worried about three issues in their children’s lives: health, nutrition and education. Health is one of the most highly valued essentials for our children. We are also concerned about nutrition, although often we make mistakes and do not give them the best. Lastly, education is the other developmental aspect that concerns every parent.

We conducted a research through the review of the main pedagogical approaches in the world to develop a proposal for art, modern and contemporary. Our program includes bonding, cognitive, symbolic and social skills, key elements in the development of the child. We emphasize record and demonstrate the biography of the child’s development and to meet the challenge of educating the children of 0-5 years start from solid philosophical, scientific and educational bases, for which purpose we propose our vision and mission as a commitment socially I assumed.

What do we intuitively know about the our children’s development?

The first thing we know is to observe our babies’ behavior, and to be surprised by everything we see. It is amazing to see their little hands, feet, toes and fingers, their perfection. This is our first experience which also gives us great joy.

Another thing we notice is how they smile and cry, and we learn that there is not only one kind of crying, but many ways of crying. This is called “baby language”, because through it a baby tells us that he / she is hungry, sleepy, bored or in pain. Attentive parents quickly learn to differentiate the signals that babies give and meet their specific needs.

We also notice their curiosity; they observe faces and moving objects. They explore with their toys, as they touch them, pull them and are surprised by their effects. As we can see, we learn a lot by observing our children.

What new things do we need to know about our children?

There is something that will surprise you: genetic studies and neurosciences have demonstrated that a child is end owed with a lot of information that requires contact with his/her parents in order to use it. Babies that do not have this contact (called “interactive play form”) are unable to open what we now know as genetically pre-coded “modules”. These modules carry information that requires significant adults to be opened. These findings explain to us why a new born child learns as much and as quickly as he/she can until he/she turns four.

What are interactive play forms?

They are specific behavioral patterns that parents have with babies and young children. As parents, you may have noticed that the language you use with a baby or a young child changes in tone. You usually use baby talk and change posture. You are flexible and try to approach the child physically. That has happened to all of us as parents. However, there is something that we have to think about to avoid repeating it: many parents believe that children speak in a particular way and that we have to imitate them. This should be avoided because it delays the development of language. We should speak clearly, softly, and with an affectionate ton because initially, a child recognizes one’s tone of voice rather than words. Only upon increasing vocabulary when the child is approximately one and a half or two years old, words begin to have meaning. At first, it is all about intonation. For example, if you tell your baby that you love him/her very much or that he/she is a cute baby with a loud voice and brusque gestures rather than.


The Bright Modules curricular concept is defined as the learning experiences, designed for our educational model to enhance the modular sets produced by the various talents children from 0-5 years of age possess.

The curriculum is structured by ages, which are grouped based on modular sets. As competencies, the sets have areas that make it possible to organize them pedagogically. These areas produce a pedagogical order of general and specific competencies, according to pedagogical dimensions. Therefore, curricular structure is organized for each age by modules, pedagogical areas and the number of general and specific competences.

Ages: 0-5
