ASSENTIS AND CHANCELARIA SCHOOL
Provides nursery education for 3-6 year old children. Supports local families with moments of
welfare and security, namely in the scope of the individual and collective health.
The School Centre operates Monday to Friday from 9am to 3.30pm. From 3.30pm to 7.30pm
the School Centre offers extra-activities (the so-called family support component) that are assured by
monitors or school servants and supervised by the educators. The educational component is free; the
family support component is paid according to criteria set by the municipalities.
The school year starts in September and ends in July. Throughout the school year there are
three major breaks: Christmas, Carnival and Easter.
The staff team is built with:
4 teaching assistants
4 lunchtime supervisors.
The children are split into groups according to their age. There are 4 groups: Yellow, Red,
Blue and Green.
The classrooms are divided in several areas:
expression/creative area; the make-believe area; the ICT area.
Then they have the school library where children listen
to stories and learn how to handle books and where they
contact with story-tellers, illustrators and writers. The School
Centre also offers gym and music classes.
We offer a planned programme of activities to the children that are focused on the personal
and social formation, the expression and communication development and the knowledge of the
world. We also offer the outside environment where the
children can play at their choice.
We also have a vegetable garden that children
cultivate with the help of the educators, the monitors and
