Discover our bilingual nursery schools in Madrid and Aravaca.

Educating values since 1974… Discover the multilingual project of our nursery schools!

Welcome to Alaria Nursery Schools, pioneers in infant education from 0 to 6 years old for more than 45 years. The main objective of our bilingual nursery schools in Madrid (in El Viso neighbourhood, next to Serrano and Paseo de la Castellana) and Aravaca (very close to Pozuelo – Barrial) is to create an effective and educational environment in which children from 0 to 6 years old learn to think, to look for solutions by themselves through the management of their emotions...Thus, going far beyond the concept of a bilingual nursery, we aim to ensure that our pupils, at an early age, develop their full potential. Much more than just bilingual nurseries in Madrid!

Day by day, our team of more than 70 professionals enrich a project that is alive and constantly evolving. We base our pedagogical work in giving our pupils an education incorporated with values through i) Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences (by which we explore the potential of each child in all of its facets – linguistic, logical, mathematical, intrapersonal and interpersonal, and musical…), ii) the daily integration of Thinking Techniques which aims to help our children develop their logical and critical thinking (logical wheels, C.T.F., associative analysis, etc.) and iii) various activities that help the emotional environment of your children. And, above all, our main objective is to achieve the child’s happiness: it is only in this way, we will be able to help them develop different skills at all levels.

Our nursery schools are prepared for Covid-19

Alaria Nursery Schools offers all the guarantees and resources againts the coronavirus

We are really proud to offer our families and students the best possible framework to face the pandemic due to Covid-19:

  • We have implemented a very extensive Covid-19 Protocols that are completely adapted to the peculiarities of Infant Education, by which we integrate 378 specific measures in 5 areas under continuous revision in all of our nursery schools in Madrid and Aravaca: CO2 meters, disinfectants for Covid-19 of the maximum guarantees, full curricular adaptation to the new context, etc.
  • We offer a Homeschooling Programme that allows our pupils from 0 to 6 years of age to continue with their school tasks when unforeseen circumstances happen: live online sessions every morning and afternoon with their teachers, asynchronous recorded sessions that can be accessed at any time of the day, an Off-line Activities Programme as a complement, daily tutorials with their pedagogical, psychological, and paediatric team…

Pedagogical pillars of our bilingual nursery schools

Much more than a kindergarten: our curricular approach

  • Full stimulation of the child from a Multiple Intelligences perspective: at Alaria we believe that it is essential to take advantage of this at an early age to help your child in using all of their abilities and intelligences.

  • Integration of Thinking Techniques in our daily life: we help the children to develop a thinking approach that allows them to “learn to learn” (metacognition), to encourage logical, critical and creative thinking… thus, reinforcing a systematic structure of their thinking.

  • We work by Projects: We structure our programme in 6 different projects each year (each one is more exciting!), through which we expose the child to discover their specific topics and lessons.

  • We improve in a cooperative learning environment: we want our students to experience the importance of teamwork and to learn to solve problems together with their classmates at an early age…

  • We encourage creativity: we want our children to be able to use their creativity and imagination from multiple perspectives (experimentation sessions, robotics, creative thinking techniques sessions, activities aimed at encouraging lateral thinking…).

  • We grow up in a bilingual environment: In our bilingual nursery schools, we offer an international environment (with students of more than 35 nationalities), in which English and Spanish are used interchangeably.

“There are two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children:

One of these is roots, the other is wings”

Hodding Carter

Purely diverse environment

Our bilingual nursery schools offer a multicultural environment to pupils of almost 40 nationalities.

At Alaria Escuelas Infantiles, we are very proud to offer our pupils a purely diverse environment, in which our students from more than 37 different countries live together in a multicultural and truly enriching environment. Proof of this is our close collaboration with numerous embassies, international business schools, multinational staff in Spain, etc. throughout the years.

Activities carried out in our nursery schools in Madrid and Aravaca

In our school we stimulate the child to develop his or her full potential.

One of the bases of our educational project includes the programme of activities. Through play, sport, music, dance and other activities we stimulate the child’s capacity for learning. In addition, we work on different subjects through exciting, fun, stimulating and motivating tasks and exercises, so that children can learn by experimenting, discovering, and using their curiosity and creativity throughout the process.

Get to know the day-to-day life of our nursery schools

We want you to be aware of the school’s day-to-day work: what we have worked on during the day, how the morning has gone, what emotions we have explored in depth during the afternoon…. For this, of course, we will be in permanent dialogue at the School, both in the morning and in the afternoon. However, in order to facilitate this relationship as much as possible, we complement this personal relationship with all possible online media, both private (such as our internal communication platform, where you have all the information of the day, menus, photos of the day, events, etc.) and public.
