Welcome to our unique school

“The child is not a vase to be filled, but a fire to be lit”. (F. Rabelais)

Educating is for us an exciting, rich, engaging adventure that ignites the passion of knowledge. We are a small multicultural community where students of different nationalities learn and confront each other in a stimulating environment. We teach languages to children, because at a young age it is a simple and spontaneous game, a game that helps them develop logic and relational skills. We work so that every student can discover his own skills and light his own fire.

  • Over half of the teaching hours are in English and they are taught by native English speakers
  • Introduction to Chinese Mandarin
  • IT laboratory
  • After school program (Formula Club)
  • 22 artistic activities and sports
  • Wide open spaces

Book a visit of the school now and I will have the pleasure of showing you around!

I just wanted to say thank you for everything; I only arrived here at the school three years ago and it immediately seemed like a special place where everything is more serene. I arrived here three years ago and it immediately seemed like a special place where everything is more serene: we study a lot, OK, but we also have fun. We do a lot of things and they are all very interesting and special. As you know I'm part of a football team and when I go to games or training I hear my teammates talking about their schools and their experiences: school just seems boring and that makes me think even more about how unique this school, your school, our school really is!

When we leave Lavinia at the Kinderhaus we are serene. We know that we are giving our most precious possession to people who will watch over her, help her to grow in the best possible way and make her feel the warmth that cannot be missing when bringing up children who are still so young.

School has been an extraordinary experience, a highly innovative, effective and fruitful teaching method that has turned our son's schooling into an exciting experience that we will keep among our fondest memories. In the morning, Pierfrancesco was ready well in advance and he was the one who urged us to drive him to school because he wanted to arrive on time. When he left school, he would complain that the time had flown by, and when asked how it had gone and what he had done, he would answer with joy and enthusiasm.

I want to thank the Kinder school very much for what you are doing. Andrea has grown a lot and the tools (teaching systems/methods of applying these systems) have a very high value for me. [...] THANK YOU Kika, Antonella and all the staff. I was convinced of the choice I made to bring him to this school the first year and more and more every year. Thank you 🙏🏾
