School is the first experience of strong socialization beyond the family group. The challenge of Lumiar is to accompany the student in this interaction and to ensure that his or her exploitation potential is respected.
Our methodology provides two fundamental values: autonomy and affection. An autonomous child is one who can express his own wishes, knows his own limits, recognizes his needs and knows how to act in a social context.
Affection is our commitment to relate with affection, with care and with kindness, so that the child feels welcome and comfortable to relate to others in a healthy way.
From these two values - autonomy and affection – the Lumiar methodology considers and creates spaces for exploration, research and fields of experience.
Our approach encourages the student to explore and learn from transdisciplinary researches and project.
Periodic meetings to share opportunities and challenges of this determinant development phase.
Our curriculum has an individual look at the potentialities and needs of each child, aiming at their integral development.
The insertion of English takes place from real contexts, in a natural and fun way, in line with our methodological pillars.
The tutor is the adult of reference and the teacher is a professional passionate about a theme, responsible of sharing it with the children.
In our school, we have a view of Serra da Mantiqueira. It is at the foot of the mountains that our children develop their skills and competences. The extensive lawn is an invitation to jokes and also serves as a “classroom” to enjoy the fresh air and sun on the freshest days. The surroundings of the school are also places of exploration. Not rarely, we visit the waterfalls and the trails of the neighborhood and we make of the surroundings also a space of learning.
All meals (snacks, lunch and dinner) are produced at school, with the menu prepared by a nutritionist. We prioritize fresh food and cherish diversity on the menu to accommodate diverse eating habits.
Snacks consist of fruit juices, breads or cakes. Meals always have a protein source, a carbohydrate, a grain, a variety of salads and a dessert fruit.
In Lumiar, the moment of feeding is also part of the pedagogical project and, as such, is filled with intentionality. Since the early childhood, our students are encouraged to make the best choices and avoid wastage. This is a perennial apprenticeship that will make your child enjoy healthy foods even when out of school meals. Therefore, it is a way of skill building and health promotion.
“Lumiar is a very special school: as a parent and participant in the school community, I perceive the zeal with which the pedagogical team deals with everyday demands and the chance to put into practice human values so important for the times that we live and that will come: autonomy, dialogue and sense of collectivity. Students are experiencing new paradigms inspired by horizontality, respect and freedom, and the pedagogical proposal of projects renews the learning process with opportunities to meet different personalities and content shared by those who are passionate about the chosen themes.Daniel Elohim's father
“Lumiar has an existential value for my family. The teaching methods are effective and the experiences, always based on love, respect and ethics, transform values and teach in a permanent way. My children love it, it is like an extension of home. Dedication, love, commitment and competence are qualities of everyone who works at school. The maturity level of awareness and understanding of the students is really impressive. I am always grateful for the way of welcoming of this community and I am sure that everything my children bring to school is relevant because it is positive”Leila mother of Gaia and Caleo
“Francisco is a very happy, questioning, curious child who cares about others. I am absolutely sure this is a result of everything he experiences at school. We reinforce this at home, of course, but most of the time he stays at school. Therefore, my heart is calm about everything that he learns. Besides, he loves going to school. When he is on vacation, he is sad because he does not have classes. Knowing this really fulfills the heart of a mother”Cristiane Francisco's mother
