tarta facciata

La Tartaruga nursery school is set in a large green area that is shared with Pegaso pre-school. The indoor and outdoor spaces are articulated and organized of centres of interest in support of an educational proposal oriented to the children autonomy and the development of the plurality of their intelligences, which takes into consideration their skills, combining the safety need with exploration and knowledge one, the desire for intimacy with the pleasure to be with others.

The younger children’s section is an area set up with age-fitting furnishings that facilitate the first steps, with soft and easily accessible materials, which offer multi-sensorial experience of exploration, handling and discovery that are the basis of learning processes.

The middle children’s section offers several play opportunities with structured areas that allow autonomy and small groups activities. It’s set up in different ways and several times during the school year, according to changes of the children, their skills and their interests and curiosities.

For oldest children, the spaces are set up with educational proposals that promote autonomy and more and more refined skills. Play with informal materials, symbolic play, the play self-organised in small groups are experiences that lead to a harmonious growth both from the cognitive point of view and from the socio-emotional one.

In a small atelier, the children can experience graphic, painting and creative proposals, with clay and other materials that allow pupils to leave traces of their work. An indoor garden welcomes a fish tank and two turtles that live for long time in the green area. Taking care of the turtles, like taking care of the fish, becomes a daily ritual for children and often this ritual accompanies the greeting moment in the morning. Garden space, wide and varied, has been re-plan thanks to families contribution, through the creation of small green ''labyrinth'', adequate play areas for children of different ages that allow natural experiences.

Families and participation

Families participation in the nursery school’s life is achieved through different modes: parents-school individual talks, the section meetings, the Nursery school Board, playing afternoons, testify to the wealth of opportunities for meeting, discussion and sharing. The families took part in the plan works of outdoor spaces, creating a natural labirinth and other playing areas, built with natural materials.
