Symbolically named "Years of Ascent", the new preschool curriculum framework recognizes the importance of pre-school age in developing lifelong learning skills, such as self-confidence, openness, curiosity, persistence, resilience and creativity.

Programmes in preschools are created through the joint participation of children and adults in an environment that is inspiring for the child.

They promote programmes that are created through joint participation, in an environment that is inspiring and provocative for the child, and where he can freely explore, play, think, cooperate with others, try out and meet the world around her.
