Tickles offers all the social pedagogic conditions so that the infants grow in a happy and healthy manner, providing the parents with the feelings of trust, satisfaction and tranquility, established in a institution characterized by professionalism, dedication and joy.


Located in Rua São João de Brito, TICKLES is an bilingual (Portuguese/English) pre-school teaching establishment for children between their four months and six years of age. Tickles is also developing a project of enlargement by opening the first cycle of basic teaching by the next scholar year (September 2017). Our educational team promotes the learning through the individual voice of each child, recognizing it as an active being and author of its own history.


Our nursery is equipped with high quality material where babies can grow and develop in a harmonic and adventurous environment, always supervised by experient and qualified professionals.

Day Care

The day care center was thought and developed  keeping in mind the norms and practices that provide a healthy growth of our children as to allow the staff team to establish a procedure of active and differentiated learning.

With children up to 2 years old, our professionals develop the educative action, creating challenging environments and appropriate opportunities and interactions, so that the children can acquire independence and autonomy and  develop constructively their competences, keeping in mind their interests and needs, as a priority.


In kindergarten, we resort to a wide range of educational activities ,for children of all ages, such as gymnastics, English, dancing, drama, between many others. Our professionals always keep in consideration that “nothing reaches the spirit without first passing through the actions” (Aristóteles), and so provide the infants with multiple opportunities to interact with their surroundings, as for example, with vegetables, animals, and objects in a general manner, and also the use of artistic expressions and new technologies of information and communication in order to access knowledge.  We  guide these activities without the passing of knowledge being the main concern, focusing instead in guiding children in the construction of their own knowledge based on the living of new experiences, observations and reflection on themselves.

The Garden

Our garden is a privileged space within the city, that provides healthy  interactions and games while keeping the children in contact with nature, in a controlled and safe environment. Besides of the presence of birds, our garden is also habited by our pet rabbit, “Bernas”, which is everything but shy and loves to play with children.


Besides the different rooms and equipments, Tickles provides modern installations appropriate for children of different ages. This installations allow not only an effective operation as they also provide the necessary comfort so that both Tickles staff and it’s children may reach their maximum potential with major happiness.
