Yago School Nursery was born from the need of today’s parents to combine their professional careers with the care, attention and education of children in the first cycle of Early Childhood Education.
Our Nursery School is part of the integral project of Yago School, where students have the opportunity to be educated from 0 to 18 years old at a school that offers an international education. The pillars of our institution are: Languages, Science and Technology, Music and Art, Sports, and Values, in this case adapted to the ages and needs of each student. We are aware that the environment in which children live during the first years of their lives will have a decisive role in the formation of their personalities.
At the Nursery, the first stage of infancy, it is essential that the care and needs of all our students are covered. Feeding, sleeping, diaper changes, sphincter control, and outdoor play are fundamental for a complete and good development of babies, always on par with a solid educational project, to get the best out of our students.
At Yago School Nursery:
- We enhance creativity and awaken an interest in discovery.
- We use methodologies based on the Development of Intelligence and Early Stimulation.
- We understand bilingualism as the ability to use two languages indistinctly and with full competence in both languages.
“To achieve bilingualism, it is very important to take advantage of the learning stage of the mother tongue, that is, from birth to 5 years of age, so 70% of our training is done in English”.
Ms. Elena Coello, Director of Yago School Nursery
A young child learns naturally, does not translate, and can effortlessly and naturally internalize words and phonemes without great complication. We learn the second language in a natural, playful and intuitive way: from the age of 4 months a child can distinguish his mother tongue from a second language. At Yago School Nursery, we establish the foundations of spoken English through English immersion, games, routines, songs, poems and Yago Phonics, using gestures, dances and flash cards.
Early Stimulation influences a person’s intellectual capacity and it has been proven that teaching a second language to children at an early age improves neuronal connections and increases the capacity for intellectual development.
By the time students finish this stage and move on to the Senior School, they are able to understand the messages they are given in English, do what they are told, and to name many things, as well as to answer in this second language in a spontaneous and natural way; they have already come a long way.
Yago School Nursery develops the Early Stimulation Program.
What does it consist of?
Early Stimulation is a set of educational techniques that aim to promote the cognitive, social and emotional development of children.
At the Yago School Nursery, we begin by giving special importance to the physical program in order to guarantee a base for the general development of our students.
Within the physical program, the basic activities for the good neurological organization of the brain are crawling, walking, and running and therefore these occupy a privileged place in the daily routine. In addition to the fact that they are activities that children really enjoy, they bring great benefits.
Crawling and dragging collaborate in the organization of the midbrain through cross patterning.
The brachiation ladder develops the pectoral muscles, back, and shoulders, while working on short-distance eye convergence and facilitating the acquisition of manual dexterity.
The physical program, carried out rigorously and systematically, helps to achieve good neurological organization that is not only able to help the child but also helps to prevent possible difficulties in future learning.
“At the Yago School Nursery, we start with PBD which then continues in our Infant school at age three. Motor development is the basis of the child’s overall development and we have specific equipment to be able to work on all the skills adapted to these ages.”
Ms. Isabel León, PDB specialist teacher at Yago School Nursery
What benefits do our Nursery children get from our school?
At this stage, our students are divided into three age groups: Babies (from 4 months to 1 year old), Teddy Bears and Monkeys (from 1 to 2 years old), and Kangaroos and Koalas (from 2 to 3 years old). All our little ones receive the same attention as at home and are stimulated in a protective and loving environment.
“At Yago School Nursery, we apply a multitude of current successful methodological approaches, such as Montessori, Waldorf Steiner, Bank street, Steam-based Learning, Reggio Emilia, and Playway ”
Ms. Ashley, Yago School Nursery teacher
As an international nursery, we use a two-phase approach, working in corners and project-based learning with a cross-thematic learning theme every term at Yago School Nursery. This gives children the opportunity to manipulate, explore, and compare through structured and programmed activities while learning through transversal projects, a model where children learn from their closest reality and their own experiences.
It is an educational project with the most effective, innovative and avant-garde methodological approaches in early childhood education, such as Montessori, Waldorf Steiner, Bank street, Steam-based-learning, Reggio Emilia and Playway.
Development of the most important aspects for children from 4 months to 2 years old:
- Gross psychomotor development

- Affective development
- Cognitive development
- Development of autonomy
Work focused on strengthening:

Discover our Nursery facilities
“At Yago School Nursery, we have a completely independent area for the the youngest children from four months to two years old. It is an Hacienda with more than 1,500 m2 of facilities dedicated to the care and optimal emotional, physical, and academic development of babies and toddlers”.
Ms. Ana Gordon, teacher at Yago School Nursery
Our Nursery School is created in a privileged, well cared for, safe, comfortable and cheerful environment that is also bilingual, so that our students are immersed in their second language from the moment they hear their first words.
All the facilities are equipped with the necessary measures to guarantee the safety and well-being of the little ones.
The educational area is composed of classrooms adapted to the different ages and equipped with the necessary didactic material for each stage: interactive whiteboards, classroom libraries, table area, floor area, and personal spaces such as hooks and storage systems to teach the students to be responsible for their things. All classrooms are connected by large windows and also have outside ventilation.
The importance of hygiene habits is key at this age. At our Nursery, we have independent bathrooms integrated within the classroom to promote these habits in a correct and disciplined way. Sinks and toilets are adapted to students’ heights, and there are changing tables, small bathtubs, and a large storage area with everything necessary to care for our students (diapers, wipes, special creams, soap, towels, personal sponges).
At Yago School, we like to adapt to the age of the students and offer at each stage everything that facilitates development, and the correct and positive progress of students. We have a lovely Baby House, which is a space specially designed for the smallest of the Nursery, where our students from four to 12 months enjoy exclusive facilities made for them with all kinds of stimulation, and a play room and garden area fully adapted to their needs. It is equipped with central heating, a kitchen, a nap room, an area to work on their psychomotor skills, and a garden with artificial grass for enjoying the outdoors.
We have a large 900m2 garden with areas of natural grass and others with artificial grass that enable motor development, imagination, fantasy games, role play, sports, social development, as well as the celebration of various outdoor events, like the annual Summer Show, Grandparents Day, birthdays, etc.
We think it is important to have shady areas, so we have all kinds of trees, like jacarandas, lemon trees, orange trees, and false pepper trees.
Psychomotor skills classroom, sensory classroom and relaxation classroom.
This classroom provides a great space for motor and body education at this age.
When working on psychomotor skills, it is very important to take into account that the environment where this activity takes place fulfills its function. We designed an extraordinary psychomotor classroom where students acquire notions of space, time, and laterality, related to their body, objects, and situations that facilitate the acquisition of new learning and the development of their abilities.
It is a spacious, luminous, ventilated, conditioned, and adapted space with all the necessary material and equipment to carry out the sessions that will contribute to the integral development of the babies of the most exclusive international nursery school in Seville.
We have our own kitchen, a modern kitchen with all kinds of resources and advances so that our students can have a balanced and varied diet with fresh products, adapted to each age and to each moment of nutritional development in which each one is and elaborated daily by great professionals who help us in this learning process.
The feeding moments at these ages are key, since it is in the stage from 0 to 3 years when they begin to learn to use the different eating utensils, to be properly seated, and to taste different flavors and textures.
It is a complex yet rewarding task, and parents can have peace of mind knowing that their children are practicing the correct methods five days a week.
At our Nursery, we pay attention to the paramount importance of rest and sleep at these ages. Sleep for children is a physiological and psychological need, utterly necessary for proper student development.
We help and educate students on this important habit.
We have a unique and exclusive space for the sleep, divided into a cradle area for the little ones and another part where cots are distributed.
Frequently Asked Questions
At what age can my child enter the Nursery?
Nursery students can start attending our baby house starting at 4 months of age, essentially at the end of the parents’ maternity leave. In this way, we contribute to the reconciliation of family life by facilitating parents’ return to work.
We also accept children from 12 months to two years old at Yago School Nursery, at any time of the year, subject to the availability of places in the classroom of the corresponding age group.
Is it necessary to enter a Yago School Nursery to access the Yago Senior School?
To enter Yago School, it is not compulsory to enroll at Yago School Nursery, but it is advisable because the students acquire the sense of responsibility, autonomy, stimulation, and bilingualism that will help them to adapt better to the Senior School.
We do, however, accept students directly in Infant 3, who will gradually pick up the same pace as the students coming from our Nursery.
What materials should I buy for my children at the Yago School Nursery?
The school uniform and backpack can be purchased at the Yago School shop; the shop offers an online ordering service to help parents order without having to come into the school. Parents must also pay a fee for the school supplies, which include the school journal, construction paper, markers, paint, and even the costumes for the Christmas and Summer Shows that our teachers design. In addition to the school material, they must buy a book created by our pedagogical team that they complete throughout the school year with different activities adapted to the content programmed in each of the terms.
What should my child take to school every day?
Starting in Infant 1, students should bring their school journals, morning snacks, water bottles, and pacifiers if used; this should all be packed in the Yago School backpack.
Students must also bring a blanket and pillow that will remain at the Nursery for nap time. We will wash it consistently until the end of the school year. Students must also have two changes of clothes to have on hand when necessary.
Guidance and attention to parents
Yago School Nursery is characterized by individualized attention and fluid communication between teachers and parents.
There are different means of communication, including individualized quarterly tutorials, the school journal for daily messages both home-nursery and nursery-home, email, Educamos digital platform, ClassDojo (where evidence of babies’ development is collected), our website, and social networks.
In addition to the fluid and close relationship with teachers and the management of our Sevillian Nursery, we organize interesting Parent Schools which guide parents on relevant educational issues adapted to these ages alongside the Counselling Department.
Heat stroke is caused by extreme elevation of body temperature due to heat exposure. This exposure can lead to loss of water and mineral salts that alter the body’s thermal regulation system. Overheating follows from this.
The Graduation Ceremony of the 2nd graduating Baccalaureate promotion 2020/2022 last Friday, May 27th, was an incredibly memorable celebration, as we once again celebrated the graduation of a group of students that shines for their personal and academic excellence. Our students are more than prepared and excited to begin a new stage.
