Directions to Callao Learning Centre
The Callao Learning Centre is a British School in Tenerife for multinational children aged 4 years upwards. With over 40 years experience in the UK educational sector, Jean Simpson the school head, fully believes that children are individuals; 'they learn in different ways and at different speeds'.
That is why each child at the Callao Learning Centre has an individual education plan based on the UK curriculum. It's designed to enhance their strengths, overcome their weaknesses and broaden their skill sets. All this is achieved in a dynamic interactive atmosphere where the small class size promotes the 'one to one' which forms the central pillar of their learning experience.
Residents of Callao Salvaje, where this English-speaking school in Tenerife is based, refer to their community as 'the village' and in many respects the Callao Learning Centre has the feel of the traditional village school but with 21st century teaching techniques. Reading is taught by successful phonics-based methods and computer skills are a daily activity.
Of course the core subjects of English and Maths form the backbone of the curriculum but these are integrated with Spanish lessons, PE and dance. In addition, the flexibility which characterises the school's ethos allows time for art and pottery sessions delivered by visiting specialists.
Lessons are taught in a structured environment via a listening, supporting, encouraging and befriending approach which helps to engender self confidence and a natural curiosity in the children.
Pupils are from a wide variety of backgrounds. Some started their education there. Others met barriers to their educational development in previous schools and needed the targeted personal help offered by Jean Simpson and her team to overcome these obstacles.
Official classes run from 9.00am - 3.30pm.
It may well be that you're happy with your child's current school but feel they need a helping hand in certain subjects. Individual or group private lessons in Tenerife are also available between 4.00pm - 6.00pm to bridge the gaps.
So whether your child is about to start their educational journey or feel they would benefit from the different approach on offer at the Callao Learning Centre, request an appointment to discuss their individual needs or find out more info using the E Mail above(right).
