Our CDIAP services are:
The CDIAP EDAI Les Corts-Sarria is located in the centre of Les Corts, one of Barcelona´s oldest and historical boroughs, with archaeological findings dated as early as the 2nd Century BC. The name ´Les Corts´ derives from Latin and it means rural houses and fields, referring to the homes of farmers in the old town. Our CDIAPS also work in the districts of Sarria and Vallvidrera, or Tibidabo and Les Planes, which share similar origins. All of these areas maintain the same spirit still present nowadays: they are family-orientated, peaceful and a caring community.
The CDIAP EDAI Sant Marti is located in the district of Sant Marti, an area that holds in its identity both past and present of the city of Barcelona: it preserves the original old town of Sant Marti de Provençals, and it is at he same time the newest district of Barcelona due to the Diagonal Mar development, which has gathered a high number of families with young children.
