our projects

Discover the exciting and stimulating projects we undertake at Girotondo.

Projects v. programs

At girotondo we do not follow a prescribed program but together with the children conceive projects based on their interests and imagination.

Once a project is decided among a small group of children and educators, the latter will start planning how to best carry out the project, which challenges could arise and which other topics could be included. At this stage the Atelierista usually steps in, advising on materials and languages which would best express the project's multiple aspects.

Projects could carry on for weeks or months and could lead to new propjects or variations of the same, based on children's discoveries and new interests arising from the ongoing projects.

Natural materials allow children to think creatively
Children are encouraged to explore resources and use their imagination
The use of light brings a new perspective and objects to life

We'll be adding our projects here soon.
