Great Pre-School (Asilo) Near Piazza Liberta’

Virzi asilo3

Hi Everyone,
For any moms who arrive this summer and do not know where to enroll their children in pre-school/kindergarten, I want to spread the word about my son’s school, Gli Scolopi near Piazza Liberta.

We have had a fantastic experience with this school this past year, and I heard that there are still some spots available for 4 and 5 year olds in my son’s class. At the moment, he is one of two bilingual children (English-Italian) and the school has been very receptive to increasing the number of days that the kids learn English. They already do an English lesson every weVirzi asilo 5ek with a very nice American woman, and they said they are open to adding lessons if the parents request it. I am very excited about this, because I feel it is very important to keep kids exposed to English in social environments as well as at home.

I am hoping there are more families in this network who will want to sign up and create a core group of bilingual/English-speaking pre-schoolers, because the language program at the school can be adapted for children who are at a more advanced level, as well as for brand new beginners.

Other details: the class size is small, the kids get a lot of attention, there is a lot of hands on learning, they do a computer class and a science class one day a week, and I can’t say enough wonderful things about the teachers! I have met some very nice and dedicated teachers since living in Florence, and I have to say the two women here are by far the most energetic, warm-hearted, and happiest I have ever met.
