    (Lab. by Andrea Chianelli)

    Corporal expression is an effective tool to help emerge children’s personality and creativity, by promoting an environment of collaboration, joy and harmony. Furthermore, it creates interdisciplinary paths in which time, space, rhythm, psychomotricity, gestures and the education for the imagination are mutually reinforcing creating a singular trail. The teacher, through games, gives every child the opportunity to express themselves with their bodies, to discover something about them and about the others, to improve their concentration skills as well as their awareness, to coexist better inside of a group and at the same time, to feel free to canalise their fantasy and creativity within a guided path. Telling stories, play, express feelings and emotions not only stimulate and enrich the creativity, the fantasy and the imaginative world of every child but also, contribute to enlarge their cultural and social backgrounds and channel harmoniously the energy and sensitivity that belongs to each child, while sharing with others in a social environment. In the Corporal Expression Laboratory, children have the opportunity to be in a fun, creative, imaginative context and establish a dialogue between them and their own bodies. The body language is a natural and spontaneous way to face things and thoughts, free of established codes and it gives children the possibility to do and to express them selves.


    (Teacher Olga Maximenko)

    La Maisonnette® together with the cultural association MUSA RUSSA, offers a musical laboratory for children using the Russian Musical Pedagogical School methods, famous throughout the world for the exceptional results obtained. The general principles of teaching are as follow: start the musical study in the total variety of its components (solfeggio elements, rhythm, vocal art and audition); use the elements of the game as much as possible to allow children to assimilate musical knowledge quickly and with great solidity; discover the musical skills of children, including the elements of vocal art and the sense of rhythm, based on the presentation of the classical music masterpieces, using the music of Bach, Mozart, Vivaldi, Grieg and Ciaikovskij.


    The introduction to Classical-Academic dance is born with the aim of bringing children closer to the world of dance and music through rhythm and movement that helps them get acquainted with their bodies. Anatomy concepts are transmitted in an ideal, simple method consistently with their age. The study of the body is essential to be self aware and in a second moment, be able to move no longer with a casual approach, but in a natural, felt, harmonious matter.


    The afternoon extra-curricular courses are enriched thanks to the addition of the Course in Chinese Language and Culture.

    Specific playful-practical methodologies will allow children to broaden their experiences in this foreign language together with Chinese culture.

    The planning of the activities follow the indications of the YCT certification (Young Chinese Test) already in line with the Chinese Language Proficiency Scales for Speakers of Other Languages and with the Common European Framework of Reference (CEF). Although aimed at students up to 15 years old, it provides the reference for basic levels of Chinese language learning.
