The director, with the pedagogist, agrees on the organization and staff shifts from year to year , to meet the needs of the children present in the section, in relation to their number and age.

Teachers have an annual amount of hours to dedicate to supplementary activities such as: training, updating, documentation, school-family relations, planning. In the event that there are certified children in the school, pursuant to law 104/1992 the presence of support educators is required.

Once a month or as needed, the nursery and nursery school teachers have a conversation with the coordinator to discuss progress and analyze any situations that deserve particular attention.

Self evaluation

The "Elisa Lari" nursery and nursery school provides a group meeting every two weeks , where all the teaching staff meet with the director to discuss educational, pedagogical, didactic and organizational topics. The collectives are a strong training opportunity for all staff and, thanks to systematic verification and evaluation, we seek together the most appropriate educational strategies to adopt on a daily basis with children, families and all school staff. The figure of the Fism Pedagogical Coordinator, Dr. Elisa Tamagnini , which represents an important opportunity for the whole group to discuss planning, organizational choices and sharing linked to the various problems of daily action. Furthermore, our school follows an evaluation/self-evaluation path which involves an internal process within the school conducted by the coordinator together with the teachers, educators and auxiliary staff of the school itself, through the self-evaluation document adapted by the services, according to the model developed by the CPT and the Rav for nursery school, which converges in an evaluation summary made every year and shared with the other coordinators of the Matildic Zone. Furthermore, our school joins the Fism (Italian Federation of Nursery Schools) and is therefore networked with 76 other nursery schools and 52 Fism integrated nursery schools in the Reggio area and its province. Fism represents an important point of reference for the school with regards to institutional and management issues. The network work with the other 17 Fism schools in the city area allows continuous exchanges mediated by the work of the Pedagogical Coordination, thanks to the monthly meetings between the internal coordinators and the reference pedagogists, Dr. Sandra Rompianesi and Dr. Elisa Tamagnini . These meetings represent the opportunity to give priority to self-evaluation and verification of one's daily actions: stopping to question ourselves, reflect, discuss the educational motivations of the choices we make as a school. It is the most precious time we can give ourselves. The recurring method is that of discussion and comfort/closeness given by mutual listening and the willingness to welcome the other and return one's own professional experience/experience as a tool for enrichment and growth both personally and as a working group. In this process , direct contacts with all the teachers are usually also foreseen, thanks to the sharing in the collectives of the themes and reflections reported in the coordinators' meeting, further expanding the possibility of comparison for all. The meetings take place in turn in each school that wishes to host the coordinator group, thus offering an opportunity for exchange and mutual training given by the visit to the environments as well. The June meeting generally held in plenary with all the coordinators of the Province is a further opportunity for exchange with a broader vision of the territory in which the areas are located.

Criteria and methods of operation of the
working group

"The teacher is one who lives the educational vocation with intensity and passion but above all with the desire to ensure that the journey undertaken by the students takes place in a dimension of splendor, that the educational and didactic experiences have for them the flavor of events capable of changing their lives, of generating new awareness, of joyfully walking the path that leads to enjoying the splendor of truth, the strength of beauty, the joy of goodness. Ultimately this is the true "miracle" of the educational relationship when unexpected horizons open up to our students and these become significant for their lives."

Andrea Porcarelli


Educating is not simply a job, it is a vocation, an encounter with others, a meeting of souls. In this relationship the child perceives that he is important and precious in the eyes of the adult, who takes care of him with joy. Thanks to this relationship of affection and trust, an environment in which to feel good is created in the school, both between colleagues and with children. This well-being is sacred and we adults have the task of nourishing it every day, because children who breathe an atmosphere of serenity and peace at school (and in the family) develop their learning in joy.


The Elisa Lari nursery school is a big family, especially for the teachers who work there with dedication and love. It is a place where you can find the affection of home, where you are valued for your qualities, where you willingly help each other in difficulties, where it is always possible to learn from others, small or large, where in a daily dialogue between colleagues you are available to welcome fraternal corrections, strengthened by a professional friendship that is created by sharing a passion for education.

Furthermore, the teacher at our school takes care of himself and nourishes his own inner spirituality, in order to transmit the values ​​of Christian life to children, to let them know the love of God and his teachings, especially through the story of the life of Jesus.

Programming ensures respect for teachers' freedom of teaching. Updating and training constitute a commitment for all teaching staff and a task for the administration.
Our school encourages the participation of teachers in various forms of ongoing training:


Periodic local updates promoted by the FISM, the Municipality and other bodies (Creativ, Studio Alfa, Catholic Action, Families in the centre, Movement for Life, Progetto Crescere, Noè Committee, Onde Chiare...)

Training, information and evaluation meetings held by the pedagogical coordinator assigned by the FISM of which the President is Sandra Rompianesi and the pedagogist Elisa Tamagnini.


Collegiality is carried out in the planning phase at the beginning of the year and is achieved in progress through:


the planning of the educational – didactic project of the year;

the identification of transversal objectives specific to the various fields of experience;

the hypothesis of operational paths with the activation of laboratories.


It materializes in:


request of teachers and all staff working in the school for congruent behaviors and skills;

request to adopt coherent attitudes;

common methodological approach, respecting the personality of each teacher;

choice of contents and activities to be carried out in section and intersection;

collaboration in comparison and self-evaluation.

Pedagogical training

The teachers of the school, in addition to participating in updates on technical training (safety, first aid and fire prevention), systematically participate in weekly collectives, in which they discuss and share the planning, the activities carried out and the concrete issues relating to organization of the service in its complexity. The collective is a space and opportunity for verification and self-training. The internal coordinator, supported by the other coordinators and the pedagogical coordinator, plays a fundamental role as she constantly accompanies and supports this style of work based on discussion, listening and dialogue. In addition to the importance of collective work, the pedagogical training offered by Fism is relevant.
