Preschool age is one of the most sensitive and important periods in human life. It is the time when the child builds the basic foundations of its personality, therefore it is necessary to be properly structured.
"The House Full of Laughter" undertakes the responsibility for providing the child the proper tools to build these foundations in the best and most complete way.
Surrounded by a stimulating environment, the child has the opportunity to get to know, cultivate, believe, and be able to cope with the world of tomorrow, a world full of changes and challenges.

We treat each child as a separate entity and respect their personal needs and peculiarities, providing them with personalised care and tailored knowledge. Within a climate of security and trust, we seek through multifaceted teaching, spiritual and emotional cultivation, social and physical development.
We apply methods, activities and creative games that enhance the child's self-esteem, encourage him / her and cultivate his / her thinking. They develop their imagination, broaden their horizons, and learn to communicate with each other and collaborate.
"All children are born geniuses, ..." Richard BUCKMINSTER FULLER
Offering different stimuli, the child is cultivated versatile, discovers its real self, its inclinations, its skills, and feels happy. If at the beginning of its life is flooded with happiness, its course thereafter will be in the footsteps of optimism and success.
our educational method
During the school year, topics inspired by children's daily routines and based on their own interests are being developed in our classes. Topics that are approached through an integrated curriculum. That means, the analysis of each topic includes activities from different subjects.
Through a safe environment and with respect to the growth momentum and uniqueness of each child, our school applies this interdisciplinary analysis of subjects, following the Gardner theory of multiple types of intelligence. According to the theory of multiple types of intelligence, each thematic unit is multifaceted. In this way, we empower the child to embrace what is taught, as activities that respond to all kinds of intelligence are carried out. Therefore, depending on his / her inclination and interests, the child learns and understands the world in his / her own unique way.
In teaching these subjects, we have the child in the centre (learner-centred teaching). That is, we give him the opportunity, through action, to conquer knowledge experientially, discovering it and applying it by himself / herself, through observation and experimentation. With this constructive approach to learning, teachers offer students "stairs" that students themselves need to climb to discover what's up there, working individually and in groups.
In such a joyful environment, rich in stimuli, which excites the imagination of children and pushes them into discovery, our school teachers work their program and aim at the following:
Collaboration and Teamwork
Self-respect and respect
These are the main objectives of the school, including multilingual education, with the systematic introduction of English, French and Chinese into the educational process.
By living in a rapidly changing society, driven by the spirit of globalisation and change, the school has to deliver from this tender age, skills, cultivating a sense of a global identity in a truly multilingual environment in order for the child to respond to subsequent challenges of life with ease.
There are six classes in our school. Children are included in them on the basis of their birth year and their evolution. Classes are kept small, since our main concern is the personalised care of each child. The classes are as follows:
Pre-BabyCare "Little Stars 1" 2 months to 1.5 years old
BabyCare "Little Stars 2" 1 year to 2.5 years old
Pre-Preschool "Little Learners" 2 to 3.5 years old
Preschool "Little Explorers" 3 to 4.5 years old
Pre-Kindergarten "Little Powerfull Heroes" 4 to 5 years old
Kindergarten "Stepping Stones" 5 to 6 years old
Each class has its own suitably configured and equipped room and the program is tailored to the needs and capabilities of each group. The transition from the family to a wider social environment, the interaction with it, and the knowledge it offers, contribute to the smooth integration of the child into our real world.
