La Giocomotiva di Via delle Campora offers a welcoming environment where children can grow with confidence while developing their skills and talents based on the Theory of Multiple Intelligences our professional, experienced and bilingual staff.

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 school joining the group.

For over twenty years La Giocomotiva has believed in the importance of stimulating and observing children through linguistic intelligence, musical, logical mathematical, spatial, bodily-kinesthetic, intrapersonal, interpersonal, naturalistic and existential intelligence.

La Giocomotiva di Via delle Campora is located at Via delle Campora 66a, surrounded by the green hills of Florence between Porta Romana and Galluzzo. You can reach us:

Who we are

The La Giocomotiva daycare on Via delle Campora, recognized and accredited by the City of Florence, is a safe and welcoming environment that prioritizes the child during their first three years.  Their creativity and potential are huge and our educational project aims to bring out and stimulate their creative energies through playing in nature. Each child has their own personal development journey that we encourage through activities such as gardening, walks, discovery games, ‘embracing trees’, and pet education. Each child’s welcome is characterized by love, respect, and attention to their individuality. Our educators observe and listen to the child, providing them with tools to observe and ask questions, but to develop their curiosity and intuition.


Our nursery has an English Teacher who is responsible for introducing the children to the English. In addition to sharing a daily routine, learning English takes place through playtime, songs, and readings in the language. By stimulating verbal and sound constructions, different than their native language, children are able to activate new connections, have greater open-mindedness, flexibility, and adaptability to different contexts and cultures.


We actively collaborate with the Universities of Education in Florence and Siena, as well as with the Audiation Institute, a cultural association founded in Milan in 2013 by musicians and music teachers who are experts in Edwin E. Gordon’s Music Learning Theory, according to which the processes of learning music begins at birth the same way language is learned.


During the summer, La Giocomotiva di Via delle Campora collaborates with Canadian Island to give children and young people, (ages 3 to 16 years) the opportunity to develop autonomy, friendship, courage, and self-confidence during the summer camps. Our summer camps in Tuscany, are an unforgettable experience and a unique opportunity to learn the English by living it, alternating class lessons with outdoor activities.


Let’s see them in detail:
