A school must be more than a pleasant place where children play. It should be an exciting, educational, safe, and affective space, with teachers really prepared to accompany the child in this intense, everyday process of discovery and growth. The school needs the ability to provide a solid foundation that will influence the future development of that child. Therefore, Saci International School structured a different design for Child Education. Still being a space for free play, and extremely affective, Saci International School offers rich and diverse everyday learning situations designed to develop the math minds, the languages and the emotions.

From this point of view, Saci International School offers activities that develop a set of knowledge, skills, attitudes and values appropriate to each age group, to form a healthy child and to develop their capacity to learn how to learn, their ability to think, and to lay the groundwork for the formation of an ethical person capable of living in a democratic environment.
We understand that the organization of the pedagogical work in early childhood education should be guided by the basic principle of giving the child the opportunity to develop autonomy, i.e., the ability to build their own rules and means of action that are flexible and can be dealt with other people, whether adults or children. Obviously, this construction is not limited to the period from 0 to 6 years of age due to the characteristics of child development, but needs to be initiated at this stage. Therefore, we propose school learning through Projects and the Montessori method.

The assessment in early childhood education is done through daily observations recorded on individual reports, in which the teacher talks about the development of skills and behavioural characteristics that will guide the work. The child is assessed on an ample way because she is an indivisible being, integrating all the essential aspects of her development - maturity )physical and neurological(, rich and significant experiences with objects from the physical world, the social transmission, and the balance (emphasis on physical and mental action of the individual).
