Activated in 2008, it takes place every day of the week at the 3 educational facilities based on the availability of places, provides for the reception of children aged 18-36 months without the presence of family or parental figures, as children are welcomed by the staff educational and inserted in the group of other children; custody is guaranteed by the educational staff of the services.

In the nursery school and in the Micronidi, staff permanently dependent on the Municipality and staff of the Cooperative awarded the contract work.

Personnel tasks

Through the planning and implementation of the various activities and services, all the staff contribute to the children's training processes. The activities of the educational services are based on collegial work in compliance with the various professional skills and responsibilities.


Natural or trusted families contribute to cover the costs of running the service by paying a mandatory monthly contribution fee. Fees and benefits are determined annually by the Municipal Council in accordance with the provisions of the DL 109 / 98 ("Definitions of unified criteria for the assessment of the economic situation of persons requiring social benefits under Article 59, paragraph 51, of 27 December 1997 law, 449 ") and its modifications and additions"

The synergies

The educators integrate with the educational action of the family, build contexts, propose materials, observe, document, welcome and relaunch proposals to children, always attentive spectators and guarantors, but also playmates.

The educators themselves periodically carry out training activities related to early childhood services, on the basis of an overall training project defined jointly among the educators and which makes use of the advice of experts outside the organization. The objective is to increase the skills of the staff and to carry out the necessary comparative assessments between similar services carried out at state-of-the-art facilities in the national field in the use of different working methods.

Acquired skills find expression in the Educational Project annually drawn up and shared with parents.

 The educational project

The Educational Project represents the planning of the activities, schedules, objectives of the service: it is the central pivot around which all the actions and people who work in the nursery move and aims to:

  • 1. make children live a rhythm of life suited to their needs, through welcoming and responsive care, with progressive activities, respect for the alternation of intense activities / calm activities, balance between individual moments, small groups, sections;
  • 2. accompanying autonomy in daily life and relationships to develop the identity of each one;
  • 3. practice activities for the global growth of the child: in the first three years of life, children develop fundamental aspects of their personality related to social and affective relationships, communication skills, motor skills, elaboration of symbolic systems where play is a fundamental strategy;
  • 4. encourage socialization: community life must allow for a wealth of relationships in compliance with the needs of affective security and cultural differentiation.
  • 5. the first years are also essential for the elaboration of gender identity. Respect for family cultures goes hand in hand with avoiding sexist stereotypes by guaranteeing equal opportunities.

A day at the Nest: the different moments of reference

All the moments of the day at the nursery are significant and formative, even the least informal, even the time scraps.
The day is marked by various moments of reference.
hours 7: 30 / 9: 00 - The reception: The moment of welcome wants to suggest the continuity between the family environment and that of the Nursery which is not only a place where you pass hastily, but where you feel welcome and you can pleasantly stop

9:45 am - Lo snack in the morning: based on fresh fruit

hours 10 / 11 - Educational proposals: The programming of the activities is based on the assumption that the game for the child is his own life is the way to know the environment, to relate to others, to know and express himself.
A day at the nursery: the different areas of activity

In order to accompany the child to achieve a complete psycho-physical development during the educational year, activities will be proposed to stimulate the various areas of the child's psycho-physical development functions with differentiated proposals based on age.
Engine Area

Games of great mobility: using different tools (for example push-walking cars, balls, tricycles, washable mattresses, etc.), the child can try, through changes in posture, all the possibilities and potential for movement that the body has , different levels of difficulty are offered to children to perfect walking and balance.

Small motor skills games: heuristic game, the treasure chest, tearing paper, interlocking bricks, stringing beads and all those activities that help to refine the movements of the fingers and the hand-eye coordination.

Handling activities: preparing large containers containing pesto bread, linseed, corn, white and yellow flour, the child is allowed to touch and learn about many types of material through the tactile, visual and odorous sensations that these materials send him.

Water games: to get closer and discover this fascinating and indispensable natural element, we try to involve children during the hygienic practices of the day.
Cognitive area

Cognitive games: games are proposed that require a minimum of attention skills such as the game of the "cuckoo", building towers with cubes, puzzles, recognizing figures from books, recognizing objects in the environment, listening to a story.

We propose activities that help the child to orient himself in space and to learn to recognize shapes and colors, understand concepts such as above and below inside and outside.

Musical activities: music accompanies the child throughout the day, helps him to mark the rhythms and time.

A background music can help him during the educational activity, it can relax him before bedtime, it can be a pleasant moment of aggregation when we all sing together and finally it is a useful tool for language development.
Affective relationship area

The time dedicated to changing the diaper, to lunch, to sleep are moments of privileged and individual relationship between the adult and the child. They are "face to face" opportunities, for conversation, for direct body contact, for emotional play, to which all the time necessary is dedicated to carry out these activities with calm and pleasure.

They become opportunities to promote the autonomy of children and their socialization.
Socialization Area

Symbolic game: Through the symbolic experience the child can live fantastic situations, exorcise fears, learn to manage situations that cause him anxiety.

The service, which takes place at the Nursery or Micronids, provides for the reception of children without the presence of family and parental figures, as the custody will be guaranteed by the educational staff on duty.

The service must be made by booking, each individual user can use the service from a
minimum of 2 hours to a maximum of 8 hours a day in the time slot 8.30 / 16,30. The service will be activated based on the availability of places in the structure in compliance with current safety regulations.

The parenting support activities in Bra began in 2003 using the funding of Law 285/97, with the aim of offering families a space in which to deal with the most tiring emotions and re-elaborate them in a different way to try to propose a alternative point of view with which to address some issues. In this regard, evening meetings and discussion groups with experts in the education sector were organized.

Following the meetings with the experts, true services were joined together:
The different types of supplementary or complementary services to the traditional nursery and the different ways of using the services as well as responding to the requests of families comply with what is promoted by the Piedmont Region in implementation of art. 1, paragraph 1252 of Law 296/2006, concerning the discipline of the Fund for Family Policies.
