The Nursery-School is a place where children share the pleasure of being with others on a daily basis.They experiment with relationships, sharing, friendships, openness and inclusivity. An experience that is made possible by being together in a place that nurtures relationships.
I primi passi alla scoperta del mondo
L'Infant-Toddler Center pone la sua attenzione attenzione ai tempi e ai modi degli apprendimenti, alla progettazione di spazi che tengono conto di bisogni differenti, alle dimensioni della “cura” delle relazioni che vanno di pari passo con il sostegno di un’autonomia sempre crescente.
Un pensiero speciale è dedicato ai lattanti, i bambini che iniziano il nido tra i 6 e gli 11 mesi, ai quali sono garantite risposte personalizzate anche relativamente ai tempi ed abitudini del sonno e del pranzo.
THE CHILD AT THE CENTRE
The centrality of the child is the main feature of the Nursery and Kindergarten: the belief is that a child is an active organism that has all the inner potential for development through stimulating environments, opportunities for exploration, expression and different languages.
THE HUNDRED LANGUAGES OF CHILDREN
In the belief that the child possesses a hundred languages, it is up to the adult to listen, recognize and enhance them and create situations in which multiple possibilities can emerge.
THE EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT
The school environment, in addition to being an architectural structure, is a place of life and a meeting place, creating space for relationships between people and interactions with objects. The Nursery and the Kindergarten create a living environment, continuously defined and modified by the explorations, research and experiences of all its inhabitants.
The educational staff of H-IS Mandorla, starting with the Nursery, focuses on a close collaboration between educators and native English-speaking teachers who continuously interface and coordinate with Italian mother-tongue colleagues.
Nursery and Kindergarten should underline the idea that nutrition symbolises health, pleasure, culture, while paying attention to the origin, the type of production and the seasonality of the products that are consumed within the school.
