school program

The Trampoline School provides education mostly in French which respects the teaching principles and the standards of Peruvian education. To make sure your child acquires all the fundamental knowledge that will enable him to develop his intellectual capacities and talents, The Trampoline School follows the programme established by the French Ministry of National Education by integrating the teaching of Spanish and Peruvian history and culture.

School Cycle
The kindergarten is the educational and teaching basis on which all learning to be pursued in primary school will be consolidated and developed.

The first school cycle which begins from the age of 2 and a half years up to the age of 6 years consists of:
Little Section (3 years)
Medium Section (4 years)
Big Section (5 years)

Programme:
At this stage, the school program offers various activities for addressing the following fields of exploration: Appropriating the language, discover the writing, becoming a pupil, acting and expression with one's body, discovering the world, perceiving, feeling, imagining and creating. Each teacher accompanies each of his pupils during the time of this first stage of fundamental acquisitions by setting up a framework of life and an organization of activities that promote his autonomy and socialization.

Especially in the kindergarten, the programme is not hidebound by a rigid timetable, but favours the multi-disciplinary workshops. The different fields of learning will be addressed throughout the three years of kindergarten. The programme establishes the objectives to be achieved and describes the skills that will need to be acquired before going to primary school.


School cycle:
Going to primary school is often experienced as an important step in the school life of each pupil. To pursue the development of each of them, The Trampoline School gathers its know-how to provide a framework of education which is dynamic, rigorous and welcoming, where pupils enjoy learning.
Primary school includes 5 levels: CP, CE1, CE2, CM1, CM2

Programme:

  • The programme covers all the basic subjects and prepares the pupil for secondary education. It includes the following areas of learning:
  • Language: The purpose of most activities is mastering the French and Spanish languages: Understanding, speaking, reading and writing 
  • Living language: English
  • Mathematics: Calculating, measuring and solving problems
  • Science and Technology
  • History and geography, good manners,
  • Plastic arts and music
  • Physical education

It is during this step at school that the pupil will develop the following skills: knowing how to listen, proposing, arguing and organizing his work and which will enable him to acquire a critical spirit.





organization

The library contains more than 200 titles of all kinds: Albums, tales, poetry, magazines, and documentaries. Most books in French have been recorded in MP3 format so that children, whose parents do not speak French, can listen to their history at home.
We also have several books in Spanish. The library is managed by the teacher and each week, pupils can borrow from it.


We welcome children from Monday to Friday from 7:50 am.
A welcome time is planned until 8:15 am, at which time activities begin.
The pupils are under the responsibility of school staff until breaking-up time:
12:45

Breaks:
Kindergarten: 2 periods of 30 minutes
Primary: 2 breaks of 20 minutes
During one of the two breaks, the children may eat their snack provided by the families.
