The daily exposition to the languages and the up-to-date teaching, are characteristics of this School in the territory.

    The Pre Kindergarten, at the moment, has a cooperation agreement with the Municipality of Rome, and offers an eclectic and multicultural education for children. The garden is protected from the traffic, it is equipped and organized as a multifunctional space that allows it to be used for the language laboratories, music and movement education.

    La Maisonnette – Con gli occhi dei bambini offers, as part of the P.T.O.F., and as curricular activity the laboratory “Play the Music” under the supervision of the teacher Andrea Chianelli.

    “During the first years of life, children express themselves spontaneously, using music: banging objects with a certain rhythm between them, they vocalize and dance to the music, they produce sounds as they run. Furthermore, children show a big range of attention when listening to music, displaying their interest and joy.

    Through music, children enter their emotions, their wishes, their needs and shape them by playing with it. The production of “Sound Dialogues” allows children to transform their emotions in communicative signals; meaning that it is in the core of the development of cognitive and social abilities, and promotes a well being at a psychophysical level.

    Additionally, the association of different rhythms, and different movements and gestures within a space, transforms music into an educational instrument for the comprehension and the retelling of reality. This is “Moulding the emotions” through story telling.

    METHODS USED: The activities reflect different models from art-therapy, to Gordon methodology, to musical education of J.Dalcroze, to the ORFF method, to the creative movement (Garcia-Plevin) to the circus acrobatics.

    Every element, technic or methodology is presented to the children as a game, song, music or just enjoyment, in a way that every child can find their personal take on the activity.”

    THE SCHOOL IS OPEN from Monday to Friday from: 7:30 am to 6:30 pm, from September to July.

    THE KITCHEN in the school complies with the security and the hygiene parameters within the Self-Regulation plan established by HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points), with periodical inspections from the competent authorities. The Municipality of Rome approves the menu. The school also provides the morning and the afternoon snack.
