Greenwood Garden School
Via Vito Sinisi 5, 00189 Rome, Italy
This American-style nursery school and kindergarten is located near the Via Cassia. Individual attention aids children in their transition from home to school. The early childhood center provides a play-oriented experience in which children learn by engaging in hands-on activities. A play group involving various physical play activities is available for two-year-olds. In nursery school, three- and four-year-olds enter a more structured environment with greater group participation. Coloring, cutting, prewriting exercises, matching and sorting, and alphabet and counting activities commence. Kindergarten prepares five-year-olds for their entrance into first grade. Basic readiness activities are developed to include alphabet and phonic recognition, reading, mathematics and number activities, science, and visual and perceptual concepts. Attention focuses on the building of verbal and communicational skills. All children participate in arts and crafts projects. Daily outdoor activities allow the children to use the garden and to engage in gymnastics and movement exercises.
