Manual of the preschool

La Salle Institución is a semi-stated founded school located in Madrid, in the Las Águilas neighbourhood. At present, the educational work developed in the center serves a large group of students and covers all educational levels: infant, primary, secondary education, high school and vocational training.

Institución La Salle has been characterized for being an open-door, creative and welcoming center, with great initiatives and concerned about providing a comprehensive education that reaches everyone. Inspired by the example of Saint Juan Bautista de La Salle to educate children and young people in a human and Christian approach. This concept of school goes further than the school´s schedule  and tries to help students to open up to a world of wide dimensions.

The Center has extensive facilities that are updated and modernized according to the needs and possibilities, always with the support and effort of the entire educational community.
