What children do at Cucciolandia Nursery:
The Nursery School Cucciolandia was established 15 years ago in Carbonia to support families with young children aged between three months and three years. The main objectives are to support parental
responsibility and take care of the primary needs of the infants in a “family nest” environment, based on:
- Educational quality
At Cucciolandia nursery, (authorized * to operate by the Municipality of Carbonia “Prot. No. 22852 of 24.07.2009 Department of Social Policies – Social Services Office”), children are the protagonists of the
entire educational path that takes place through targeted and structured activities for different age groups; many significant experiences of comparison and growth will be proposed, enabling the
combination of flexibility and quality in full respect of the children’s needs.

It is a delicate moment and deserves the utmost attention from
parents, educators and all nursery staff. In our “Welcome Path” the first few days of attendance are dedicated to getting to know the
children and sharing important information about the organization of the nursery (activities, routines, times and spaces) with their parents, as a context for new experiences.
The children will be accompanied by mum or dad who, supported by the coordination group and class educators, will follow them in the lead up to their very first detachment. The settling-in period continues for
several days in a personalised way, according to the needs of the children and families.

The “routines” are regularly repeated activities and are of great
importance in the educational intent of our staff.
They constitute a series of moments that occur throughout the day in
a constant and recurring manner, characterized by care, well-being and
These routines meet the basic needs of
children (use of the bathroom, washing, eating, sleeping …) but have an
important orientation value with respect to the different situations
during the school day; they also enhance many personal, communicative,
expressive and cognitive skills.
A careful reflection on the management of these routines is extremely important, making the children the main priority, in order to collect all the
educational wealth that the children give.
Routines can be categorised in six stages:
The welcoming and goodbyes to parents
Parents and children reunion, end of day goodbyes to teachers
They need to be carefully studied, designed and verified by our
educational team, as the well-being of the child in the nursery also
depends on them.
