R// At Colegio Jefferson we receive children from the age of 4, the age at which they enter our first level (Kinder 4). Similarly, we also have the Early Admission program that allows parents to separate the quota for their children from before the age of 4, including during pregnancy, and thus ensure it for when the time comes to start school life. . This process offers the following benefits:

  • Quota reservation
  • Freezing of income pension values
  • More time to pay or greater financial discounts on the income pension.

At 4 years old is when children reach the development that allows them to accept and be part of the proposals, dynamics and demands of a large school. At this age, at Colegio Jefferson, we begin with the approach to different areas of knowledge such as mathematics, science, English, Spanish, art, physical education and swimming, through a game and metaphor methodology, always guided by a bilingual proposal. in which they receive from the first level approximately 30 hours a week in English. In addition, from the development of the being, we work so that they advance in their independence, recognize their possibilities, those of their peers and strengthen their sense of belonging by becoming a member of a very special group with which they will share for 14 years (duration of the cycle school).

From Kinder 5 (second level of the School), children are evaluated in all areas of knowledge of a large school.

Our process is very short and also adjusts to the families’ agenda (as long as it is during school hours: Monday to Friday 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.). In summary, once we receive the requested documentation, we have an estimated time of (1) month to complete all the stages of the process, which may well decrease depending on the time each family takes to complete each of the steps.

For families who come to the process after June, other institutional times must be taken into account.
