Development of A Child’s Multiple Intelligences

The Peek-A-Boo education project is based on Howard Gardner’s contribution to psychology and educational intervention. This psychologist, researcher, and professor from the United States argues that defining intelligence by IQ has become too limited and limiting. Howard Gardner explains that IQ tests, which regulate most educational programs in our schools, are relatively accurate predictors of students’ academic success.

Center of Interest Projects

Our methodology uses interests and exploration as a starting point. The doctor and educational psychologist Ovide Decroly names the method based on this premise “Active Observation and Research through Centers of Interest.” This method consisted of coming up with themed projects directly related to the lives of the children, building a learning process through active experimentation in their real surroundings. Some of the projects are based on general ideas of child interests, but also frequently include new variables that arise according to the unique makeup of each group.


Psychomotricity is an integral part of our educational program. We don’t consider it an isolated subject, but a cross-curricular method of learning. From our educational psychology perspective, we understand psychomotricity as an essential part of the comprehensive education of the child. The child builds their own image through the influence of their first physical and psychological experiences, feelings, and sensations that help develop their body image.

Early Childhood Education

Another one of the tools we use to help our students reach their full potential is from the Early Childhood Education programs developed by the neurologist Glenn Doman. The main goal is to aid in the formation process of the brain structure by providing adequate and timely stimulation during the child’s first years of life.
