Our history

The Don Primo Carretti nursery school was founded in the Villaggio Costanzo Ciano (dedicated to the partisan Sergio Stranieri after the Second World War) in 1943. In 1948 it found its definitive location in the rooms on the ground floor of the current building which were then expanded with the construction of a second floor in 1959 and a new wing in the early 1980s. The school was managed for a first period directly by the parish of Hospice until 1968, then from that date to 1992 the operation was entrusted to the Minime Sisters of the Passion of NSGC. From 1992 the nursery school will be managed directly by the parish of St. Albert of Jerusalem with lay staff. Location and structural elements of the school The Don Primo Carretti nursery school and nursery is located in the outskirts of the city of Reggio Emilia, in via Maria del Rio n.10, in the street in front of the parish of S. Alberto. The school building is divided into two floors and has recently been renovated and renovated: significant improvements have been made to both the internal and external environments, thus also modifying its appearance. The rooms are bright and comfortable and meet the latest safety and anti-seismic standards. On the ground floor there are the four sections (each of which is equipped with its own services), the office, the computer room, two bathrooms, the lounge with reading corner, an atelier and the kitchen. On the first floor there is the common dormitory for sections 3, 4, 5 years. The dormitory of the spring nest section is located within the section itself. The nursery school has green and shaded spaces surrounding the building with outdoor play structures (slides, castle, and more), where children can spend some moments of the day. The organization of the spaces of our school allows both opportunities for individual play and the opportunity to share moments of relationship with classmates while respecting the needs of the children. Some spaces in the school are used exclusively by nursery school children, others are also used by the nursery section according to daily time schedules or based on the activities to be carried out within the projects defined by the teaching staff. Finally, other spaces are used simultaneously by the nursery and nursery school according to intersection projects.
