La Gavina is a school for boys and girls from four months to three years, whose educational project is mainly based on providing them with a happy, cheerful and affectionate enviornament in addition to learning knowledge and habits for their future. Always taking into account their development and individual needs. We are a trilingual school, Spanish, Catalan and English are the languages of the center.
It was founded in 1984 at Laforja Street 19, as a life project full of love and enthusiasm and, in 2014 we opened a second location at Marc Aureli Street 22-36, with the same desire and a renewed illusion of continue giving all our love to the little ones. The educational project is the same at both schools.
Each classroom has two qualified and lovely teachers with whom the children will play, learn and have fun every day. Daily we do fine motor skills activities, music, storytelling…, always in a relaxed and constructive environment. Emotions are worked every week with different tools since getting students to understand their feelings is very important for their development.
The garden is very important in La Gavina since we do many outdoor activities. Our outdoor spaces are 600 m2 and 280 m2 with all the safety measures that allow us to do many psychomotor activities, mural painting and lots of games.
The school schedule is from 9 to 17 pm, and we have permanence service from 8-9 am and 17-18 pm. Our schedule is flexible, children can be brought and picked up at the time needed within their schedule as we are a school fully committed to work-family balance.
