Arcadia Nuevos Ministerios

Arcadia Nuevos Ministerios is a nursery school for children from 0 to 6 years. Very well located, it can easily be found close to Paseo de la Castellana and the National Museum of Natural Sciences. Arcadia is a large nursery school with lots of windows and a great playground, allowing children to play both indoors and outdoors.

The education at Arcadia is based on Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences and Learning Styles, by using games and psychometrics works. They have recently decided to integrate philosophy for children in their activities to work on children’s emotions.

If you cannot drop your child off or pick him up in Nuevos Ministerios for scheduling reasons, you can make use of the school’s free bus that stops at the school at Calle del Maestro Ripoll, 12.

Do you have any experience with one of these nursery schools?
