Psychological counseling

in Nursery school


The period in a child’s life that is spent in nursery school encompasses many fundamental changes.
They progressively abandon behaviors, attitudes and typical needs of early childhood, in order to face new experiences that range from socializing to autonomy from new knowledge/skills in relationship with others.
Being able to track and monitor how each child lives these new experiences is the main objective of the presence of psychological counseling in the nursery school.
Because this can take place in harmony of all the elements, the psychological counseling service is expressed in multiple directions:
  • It is the crucial interface for teachers, which in this context share and develop strategies always best suited to each child
  • It is available to families as ground / framework in which they express their doubts and difficulties or simply share a thought about the child (individual interviews pre-insertion and periodically)
  • It is a daily job of monitoring the achievements and progress made by each child or of any "hard times" that can sometimes arise
  • Finally, it allows us to work on continuity with the primary school in a comprehensive manner, sharing the potential / difficulties of each person, or simply "present" every child in all of its characteristics.


At the end of the last year of kindergarten a “test of scholastic maturity” is offered to all children aged 5-6.
The purpose of this test is to assess the maturity of each child, meaning the assessment of cognitive aspects (skills), autonomy, language, motor skills (coordination) and emotion.
We then consider all the elements that the child has worked on throughout his or her schooling and especially evaluating the overall harmony.
The result of this test is shared with the family and with the primary school in order to continue high quality work.
