Our Nido Altamira is a friendly and innovative early childhood school where respect, creativity, relationships and the spirit of research are intertwined to offer the community an innovative way of learning. Supported by an interdisciplinary team of passionate teachers and support staff, we ensure that our children are constantly growing and transforming their mindset. They are subject to a series of dynamic learning experiences which enrich their motor, cognitive and sensory skills.
By having a diverse environment, which is constantly being transformed and nourished, we are able to offer high quality learning spaces, where each child can feel free to explore, grow and develop themselves.
“Weaving stories, leaving traces for a happy childhood” is the legacy of our educational project, which connects the family, as a transversal axis in the education of our students, who actively participate in the development of multiple experiences that nourish each shared space, allowing us to build quality links within our community.
The atelier is a space that serves as a laboratory where children develop their ideas and research projects through their language.
The atelierista is an artist, who designs this space and guides the children in its use; but it is also who reinforces, empowers and accompanies the work of the teachers, coordinating and analyzing daily the development of the research projects.
Art has allowed us to come into contact with the cultural legacy of a society and the environment that surrounds us. Through multiple materials that go from the leaves of the trees, seeds, branches, stones, wood and trunks to colored fabrics, chalk, clay, watercolors, wires and covers, we create different stimuli experiences.
The materials are mediators of learning and allow that through their manipulation, transformation and relationship, children and teachers are co-contributors of learning in the classroom.
“Creativity is to thought as water is to life, it is an essential part. Therefore, you can not teach but only motivate. Its development can be favored, because it is inherent to the human identity itself. It is enough to listen to the child to understand what he means by creativity. “Carla Rinaldi, in Dialogue with Reggio Emilia

Through these meetings we also seek to enhance exploration and expression through various artistic languages to find what not only makes our protagonists unique, but also connects them with their peers, families and community, which is a fundamental part in early childhood.
