Early-childhood education, as it is widely understood, deals with the educational process that covers the period beginning at birth and ending with entry into compulsory schooling (0-6 years).

Our society must provide professionals who are specialists in fostering all the capacities of the subject, orienting them in an appropriate and balanced way, providing, in short, a comprehensive training.

We have the appropriate knowledge and tools to prepare this kind of professional, resulting from a multitude of research work and studies on this developmental stage and, of course, our track record in training teachers.
