Day 6

 

In the morning some students and teachers had the possibility to visit the kindergarten called Scuola dell’Infanzia comunale Don Milani.

The school is one of the seven schools collaborating in the Quartiere Reno. As partners they are all working this year on the theme

“Snakes and mice”. Working with te same theme brings together the children from the different schools, by sharing the same stories, the same experiences…

The architecture of the building (1972 Don Milani) is rather uncommon. Next to the physics space, there is a space for storytelling and drama, the building is split up in three classes. Each class seems like an auditorium with three playgrounds. Up-middle-down. By climbing the stairs the children can move to the different areas.

One teacher is responsible for 26 children. Education through the visual arts is the central team of the pedagogical approach. Each child has a portfolio where he/she tells her/his experiences through drawing, painting…

The visit was very interesting for al of us, because we had the opportunity to see different approaches to children’s education.
