We are a private organized childcare institution and we take care of children at the age of one year till they start school and when they start with school the come to our house in the afternoon to make there homework, play with there friends and have home-made lunch here.
We want to provide a comfortable and safe environment for our kids on the pedagogic concept of Maria Montessori. We are a group of 10 employees which are provide a homelike atmosphere for around 60 children.
The main idea of our house is a respectful and lovingly handling with the children. It should be a place where children can be how they are. Dr. Maria Montessori called her daycare centre for children in Rome "casa dei bambini" - The Children's House. She had observed that children learn best in a homelike social environment with appropriate materials, which support each individual's unique development. She maintained that children are respected different from adults and like individuals who are different from one another, that they educate themselves through purposeful activity and absorb and learn spontaneously from their environment, which includes people as well as materials.
