We are a small alternative school, mainly focused on outdoor education. By now we have a small group of children aged between 2 and 5. We share work, meals and everyday life, as two of the teachers are living in the place most of the time. We try to keep a relaxed atmosphere but there's always something to do! :)
The place is a nice house between two vineyards and a small forest. We're about 10 min from the village of Montalcino by bus.
The house has two bathrooms, a kitchen, two rooms for the children and a shared bedroom with bunk beds.
There's also a vegetable garden. We have an amzing time everyday with the kids and we'd like to meet cheerful and kind-hearted human beings! Foreigners are very welcome, we're already a multicultural community (with people from Italy, Brazil, Englad, Germany, Senegal...)

You'll learn about alternative teaching, nature, ecological lifestyle. We are a school but also a small community so we'll share everyday life.

Every kind of helping for the kids (age 2-5) is very welcome.
