This school has 3 sections divided for age (3-4-5 yer olds) and 78 children. We are 6 teachers, 2 persons for the children with special needs and 4 co-workers. There is also another section but it is in another building next door but their energy bill cannot be separated from the school hosting them and therefore they can’t take part of the 50/50 project.
The school is in a big park and the outdoor life is an tradition in the pedagogical activities as an integrated part of the educational offer and on this aspect we found ourselves in line with the Swedish School from Ale with which we have started an exchange of experiences on the 50/50 project which started in both schools in January 2015.
This year in particular the teaches are learning more about outdoor education in an cooperation with the department for educational science of the University of Bologna.
