Crickets is an extensive pre-primary course, based on the constructivist approach to learning, which motivates young children to learn a second language through fun and meaningful activities aimed at fostering cognitive skills

Crickets is designed for those schools with high achievement standards.

Crickets is an inquiry-based learning method which holds that children construct their own comprehension and knowledge of the world through experiences and reflection. The construction of new knowledge is developed through a Big Question per unit. By the end of each unit, children will have acquired the knowledge and experience that will allow them to answer the question. 

In addition, Crickets integrates the natural approach, whereby children acquire communicative skills through fun activities that enable them to learn English spontaneously
