Our Pedagogy

Our practice is grounded on three pillars:

  • Being a Child
  • Respect for the individuality of each child
  • Holistic view of the child

Os Aprendizes started its activity by implementing the High- Scope pedagogy headed by Sofia Borges. The project grew from Sofia’s experience as a mother, first of Tomás and shortly after came Tiago and Manuel, and form her need to find a school that prioritised what she thought important as a mother, and the needs presented by hers and many other children. From that moment on, and just like a living organism, the school has evolved and developed its unique pedagogy.

We are inspired by several methods, pedagogues and thinkers, but above all by what our children bring and reveal overtime.

The HighScope pedagogy guides our activities in the classroom. Its main principles are:

  • Learning through action
  • Positive adult-child interactions
  • A pleasant learning environment
  • A consistent daily routine
  • Daily assessment of the child, rooted on team work

This approach fosters:

  • Autonomous thinking
  • Active learning
  • Proactive attitude
  • Active and inquiring imagination
  • Autonomy of the child
  • Self-esteem

This active learning is essential for the full development of the human potential. For detailed information on the High Scope model visit: www.highscope.com

The Waldorf Education inspires us to follow a more humanized path in terms of schooling, with a respect for the natural rhythms of the child, the holistic perspective and the importance of education through art, the contact with nature and the importance of the relationship between teacher and student in the learning process.

The Modern School Movement inspires us to value life in community and promote its dynamics, reflected in the school assemblies, class assemblies and community work.
