During the first years of school, the child goes through the most important phase of socioemotional and cognitive development. The skills learned in this period will ensure a better learning and adaptation in the world throughout life.
Lumian methodology, which is also inspired by Emmi Pikler and Reggio Emilia, considers and creates spaces for exploration, research and fields of experience. Projects are designed from these interactions – they respond to both the children’s interest and the learning needs of the cycle.
Our activities are led by a pair of educators: tutor and teacher. The tutor is the pedagogue responsible for the development of the child. Based on the interests of the class, he invites the master: a professional passionate about a subject and who will develop it for a while with the students.
From the moment of adaptation – tailor made for each child and each family – to the opportunities to explore one’s limits, each child is encouraged to observe, play, investigate, think and interact in the world. Every day.
Our approach encourages the student to explore and learn from transdisciplinary researches and project.
Periodic meetings to share opportunities and challenges of this determinant development phase.
Our curriculum has an individual look at the potentialities and needs of each child, aiming at their integral development.
The insertion of English takes place from real contexts, in a natural and fun way, in line with our methodological pillars.
The tutor is the adult of reference and the teacher is a professional passionate about a theme, responsible of sharing it with the children.
Our spaces dialogue with the pedagogical practice. We prioritize a humanized architecture that brings security and comfort to the students and favors the construction of their autonomy. The whole school is an educating environment and the child is invited to appropriate all space. Areas such as the sand tank, the wall of tiles and the room of sensations invite children to develop their social, cognitive and motor skills. For the little ones, there is a specific space with appropriate lighting and furniture such as cots, beds and nets. Everything is planned so that children and educators can change the configuration according to the experience to be performed, which allows them to be active members of the spaces.
All meals (snacks, lunch and dinner) are produced at school, with the menu prepared by a nutritionist. We prioritize fresh food and cherish diversity on the menu to accommodate diverse eating habits.
Snacks consist of fruit juices, breads or cakes. Meals always have a protein source, a carbohydrate, a grain, a variety of salads and a dessert fruit.
In Lumiar, the moment of feeding is also part of the pedagogical project and, as such, is filled with intentionality. Since the early childhood, our students are encouraged to make the best choices and avoid wastage. This is a perennial apprenticeship that will make your child enjoy healthy foods even when out of school meals. Therefore, it is a way of skill building and health promotion.
“What captivated us was the individualized and respectful way of Lumiar with the children. Our little one was welcomed with much affection and patience. At a friend’s birthday party, she stepped out of our lap and ran into the tutour’s lap. It was the best proof that we made the right choice”Laura Alice's mother
“We moved to São Paulo in early 2018 and Lumiar played a very important role in the adaptation of Jesus to the city. Method, welcoming and dialogue with him and with us. Everything collaborated so that Jesus is in love with the school environment, which receives him and allows him to develop his full potential.”Washington father of Jesus
“Our partnership with Lumiar team is very important to improve the education we give to João. In two particular moments, when his sister arrived and also when he presented changes of behavior, the conversation we had with his tutor and director helped us to make small adjustments and go through these situations very calmly.”Rodolpho and Wayne João Vicente's parents
