“I’ve been lucky enough to join Ecolint and to have discovered here the IB Primary Years Programme, which really aligns with my pedagogical beliefs. It enables the holistic development of each child, favouring both academic success and personal fulfilment. The children who arrive in our school all bring with them very varied cultural baggage, which stimulates their open-mindedness, one of the fundamental values of our community.”
