  • Description

    Description

    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...)

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You'll learn about alternative teaching, nature, ecological lifestyle. We are a school but also a small community so we'll share everyday life. You'll be able to learn our approach to education wich is very alternative and original. We're open to learn from you whatever you want to share. Every kind of helping for the kids (age 2-5) is very welcome.
