Our students discover skills in English and in a fun way

We develop a Teaching model in which "the student is the active protagonist", and apply an international methodology according to the International Baccalaureate (IB) standards: the Primary Years Program (PEP) in Infant and Primary, the Middle Years Program ( PAI) in ESO and the Diploma Program (PD) in Baccalaureate.

Preschool Education

3 to 6 years old

The second stage of Preschool Education at Colegio Arenas Internacional is designed for children between the ages of 3 and 6 years old. The skills and knowledge acquired during this stage form the foundations for future academic success. For this reason, we aim to build abilities, skills and sensorimotor development through educational programmes which cater for the varied needs and learning pace of each child and which focus on investigation based learning strategies so as to achieve a lasting education.


Colegio Arenas is an authorised centre for the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP). This programme is aimed at students from 3 to 12 years of age and is designed to create students who participate actively in the learning experiences throughout their education.

The structure of the programme is based on three interrelated questions: What do we want to learn? How best will we learn? How will we know what we have learned? At our school, this programme begins in the second stage of Pre-school Education from three years old.

We use investigation as the basis for our methodology. It is the teacher who, through the posing of open questions, guides students to inquire and investigate rather than to listen passively. Through this learning strategy, students acquire a variety of different skills, concepts, knowledge, attitudes and values.

The learning is based on four interdisciplinary themes in the first two years of Pre-school (3 and 4 years old) and six themes in the final year (5 years old).

Aula multisensorial

Un aula con materiales diseñados para que nuestros alumnos reciban diferentes estímulos. Permite desarrollar las capacidades sensoriales y cognitivas. La riqueza de estímulos sensoriales beneficia el desarrollo del pensamiento, la inteligencia y el lenguaje.

En ella se llevan a cabo diversas actividades de estimulación acústica, táctil y visual. Los alumnos disfrutarán mientras aprenden experimentando.


In the second stage of Pre-school Education, half of the school day is taught in English. The development of reading and writing skills is achieved through the Jolly Phonics method. From the moment children are able to recognise sounds, they begin to put them together to form words and at the same time learn to read using general texts.

It is essential that opportunities for communication are created in appropriate contexts so that our students feel the need to express themselves in this language. In addition, routines and positive habits (such as assembly, talking about the weather and the date, etc.), are created from the very beginning in English.

Our students’ learning experiences must be fun and enjoyable. For this reason, activities are based on story-telling, song and role-play, in which oral communication is the main focus. Our teachers use resources to aid verbal communication such as gestures or audio-visual material (flash-cards, picture books, interactive digital whiteboards).

Multisensory classroom

It is a resource that enhances the capacity for learning through sensory stimuli.

Emotional Education

Emotional Education also plays a fundamental role in our students’ education as it helps them to regulate their emotions and show empathy towards others. The principal objective of our school is, and always will be, to provide our students with a high-quality, lasting education and an experience at Colegio Arenas Internacional that will stay with them throughout their whole lives.

Reading and Writing Skills

At this stage of their lives, children experience important developments regarding their skills and thought processes. They begin to read and write and use language more precisely.

Our system for teaching reading, writing, fine motor skills, mathematics and basic concepts is particular to our school and allows children to learn progressively and at their own individual pace.
