Once Upon a Time...
The first years of life are decisive for the full development of human beings. However, the lack of day-care centers and public schools catering for 0 to 6 years olds is a serious problem in urban centers, especially in the outer surburbs such as Itapevi, located in the Greater São Paulo region.
The challenge of ensuring a sound educational background for the young children of the Monte Serrat neighborhood, has led the Apecatu Association to create a school with a difference, aiming to increase their future opportunities as adults and citizens.
Thus, in 2000, on this basis, the Apecatu School was founded.
We have waiting lists for vacancies. The Apecatu School provides pre-school education to more than 100 children from the ages of 4 to 6.
Parents also teach and learn. Everyone is required to attend school meetings, which is considered as a program for the whole family.
