We provide exposure to the English language alongside the Italian one both in routine moments and during project work.


We offer healthy and balanced meals prepared directly in our internal kitchens made with fresh organic ingredients.


We give our children the opportunity to participate in swimming lessons at the local pool.


We provide an equipped outdoor area where children can play outdoors even after school hours, sharing pleasant convivial breaks with their peers and parents.


We try to strengthen the relationship between children and nature through the care of an educational vegetable garden located directly in the school space.


La Giocomotiva di via Zocchi offers a warm, welcoming environment where children can grow up in safety by developing their skills and aptitudes according to the theory of multiple intelligences, accompanied by a trained and professional bilingual English staff.

Since 2021 we have been part of the group People&Baby who found in La Giocomotiva the model to follow and propose to all future Italian/English schools joining the group.

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

La Giocomotiva di via Zocchi is located in a side street of Piazzale Istria. You can reach us:
• With the metro line M5 (stop Istria)
• With tram line 7C


Our nursery offers a safe and welcoming environment that involves children and parents, consolidating a relationship of affection and trust. Our daily mission is to recreate a homely and comfortable atmosphere where children can best develop their skills and abilities, in preparation for their first school experience. Our educators are always present and attentive to proposing new stimulations and themes by consolidating in the little ones: self-esteem, independence and individuality. Our environments are designed to create exciting learning opportunities and support children’s natural curiosity and creativity even with extracurricular activities.


Every day the children interact with native English-speaking educators, learning English words, pronunciation, nursery rhymes and idioms from an early age. The introduction to the foreign language always takes place through games both during meals and during moments of activity.


The proximity to the nursery allows the profusion of skills, the positive exchange between different age groups, promoting the care of the little ones by the adults and the drive to acquire new skills by imitating the older ones.


La Giocomotiva di via Zocchi offers an internal organic kitchen service: everyday freshly prepared dishes with fresh and seasonal ingredients. The menu is designed in collaboration with a nutritionist to guarantee children a correct and balanced. For us, meal times are also an opportunity for sharing and comparison, a great way to discover your own tastes and get to know different colours, flavours and ingredients.


Our facility was designed by an interior designer with the aim of stimulating children during educational and recreational activities. The section is large, bright and divided by angles of structured activations: soft angle, motor angle, symbolic play angle. All locations are designed for maximum safety, even during moments of free play. The children have the opportunity to use the lounge on days when the kindergarten is outdoors to carry out motor activities and stimulation with psychomotor material. The garden is equipped with a shockproof turf shared with the SDI in rotation, the space is used both in winter and in summer in picnic mode and as a setting for naturalistic activities.
