La Giocomotiva di via Boccaccio offers a welcoming environment where children can grow with confidence while developing their skills and talents based on the Theory of Multiple Intelligences.
Since 2021, we have been a part of the People&Baby group, which has found in La Giocomotiva a model to follow and to propose to all future Italian schools joining the group.
For over twenty years, La Giocomotiva has believed in the importance of stimulating and observing children through linguistic, musical, logical-mathematical, spatial, body-kinesthetic, intrapersonal, interpersonal, naturalistic, and existential intelligence.
La Giocomotiva nursery school in via Boccaccio is located a stone’s throw from the Last Supper and just 5 minutes away from Cadorna Station.

Our school is a joyful environment focused on building a loving relationship between staff, children and parents. Our aim is to create a feeling of home, where children can develop at their own pace, building their self-confidence, independence and individuality. We provide a safe and stimulating environment that uses indoor space to create exciting learning opportunities. We support children’s natural curiosity and creativity with a wide range of activities even in extra-curricular hours (music, swimming, dance, psychomotor skills… and much more!).
Our idea of bilingualism is based on the constant and intense presence of the English language in every child’s daily life. For this reason, our staff are made up of mother-tongue educators who immediately offer activities, games and songs in English. We adopt a full immersion approach, in which exposure to the English language is daily and occurs naturally both in routine moments and during activities. Projects in English complement those in Italian, enriching the offer. The stimulation of verbal and sound constructions different from that of the mother tongue allows children to activate new connections, to have greater mental openness, flexibility and adaptability to different contexts and cultures.
Eating healthy foods is the key to growth, which is why we attach enormous importance to the quality of the food offered. Each meal is prepared with fresh local ingredients and our cooking methods preserve their nutritional value. The meals are created to emphasize the flavours and colours of the foods and to help children eat healthily with a low salt content. From fruit snacks in the morning, through lunch and concluding with an afternoon snack, all meals in our facility are prepared by our in-house cook: Mrs. Maria!
The educational link between the two schools (Nursery and Preschool) underlines another key element of our school: the educational and didactic uniqueness which, through the various projects and educational activities, has the aim of ensuring the most effective and careful development cognitive and emotional development of each child. In this perspective, we create various moments of meeting and exchange between the two realities so as to promote mutual understanding between children and teachers.
Following the EYFS and Montessori approaches we believe that children need to have the opportunity to grow, become independent and self-confident so we provide a daily routine that supports practical life skills, social experience in and out of the classroom. The UK EYFS methodology provides 3 main areas of development: personal, social and emotional/communication and language/physical development. The decision to follow this approach will accompany and offer the best growth and learning opportunities to every child of La Giocomotiva di via Boccaccio from Nursery to Preschool.
