It can be compared to many other similar expressions spread in other areas of the world, such as: “Don’t worry!” or “No problem!”

Its position has access to places of rare beauty such as the Anita Garibaldi promenade and the nearby parks.

Interacting with the family
The educators and the nursery-school coordinator are reference points not only for the child but also for the family.
This is the principle on which relations with parents are based both during everyday moments of arrival and departure and during scheduled common activities (general meetings and personal interviews).
The family is considered an active subject that participates in school life throughout the numerous occasions of exchange and interaction which are foreseen in the educational program.
