The service

The Early Childhood Center targets families with children from 6 months to 3 years and takes in up to 14 children daily.

It organizes workshop activities for children and adults, led by two educators, offering parents new and alternative tools for observation and interaction with their children. These include:

– art therapy workshops and programs
– experimenting with natural materials
– laughter yoga workshops and courses
– “Sc-Arti: the arts of recycling” expressive workshops
– “Il tappeto delle storie” (the story mat) storytelling workshops

It also provides opportunities for in-depth study, discussion and dialogue for parents, thus addressing the entire educational community of children. Among the proposals are found:

– training on childhood issues with educators, pedagogists and psychologists
– pedagogical aperitifs
– educational tutoring
– pedagogical consulting
– “Il salotto delle mamme” (the Mothers’ Lounge), a group for expectant and new mothers led by a perinatal pedagogist
