"Il casello dei piccoli" crèche

Case studies

A project that falls within the framework of employee-related initiatives undertaken with a view to supporting and promoting a work-life balance.
The crèche, located in the Villa Fassini complex, adjoining the Rome office, provides, amongst other things, invaluable support for working mothers who work for the company. Social responsibility towards the region is in fact also attested by the 20 places that are made available every year to children who are resident in the VI Municipality.

The architecturally avant-garde building can accommodate up to 60 children, aged between 3 months and 3 years.

Special importance is given to the organisation and care of children's areas, which are organised to meet children's needs and rates of development and provide an environment that promotes play and growth.

Worthy of particular attention within the crèche's educational programme are the laboratories, which have been created to encourage children's natural motor, sensory, expressive, communication and language development.

The crèche was developed as an ecological service to provide educational activities centred around nature and environmental sustainability: as well as the predominantly biological food, the crèche has the following laboratories: "vegetable garden to the crèche", "collection", "separate waste collection" and "recycling and making toys", where children make unique toys using waste materials and a little imagination.

The English language laboratory, which is delivered by a native teacher and structured to allow children to recognise and understand their first foreign language works, is also worthy of mention.

Recognition of the centrality of family relationships is also at the basis of the educational project. Indeed, parental participation in the life of the crèche and attention to the relational methods between educational staff and parents are deemed fundamental: this structured family involvement ensures educational continuity and is also structured through parental support initiatives, such as themed seminars organised by children's experts and meetings to discuss and share the pedagogical project.
