The Ponzano Children Children’s centre opened its doors to pre-school children from 9 months to 6 years old in the 2007/08 school year. It is an educational and cultural centre where the nursery and kindergarten co-exist and where children and their families can have access to long term educational continuity which allows them to develop familiarity with the places and the people there. It is an experience that originated from within the Benetton Group, from listening and talking with the local people in the area. The Group, aware of the ethical and social role of an advanced company culture, committed itself to developing an educational service based on relationships, research and the wellbeing of children and the local community. In order to do this the Benetton Group took the advice of Reggio Children, who collaborated among other things in developing the pedagogic and organisational project of Ponzano Children.
The centre was designed by internationally acclaimed Spanish architect Alberto Campo Baeza, who speaking about his work said: “Our aim was to create a nursery school that not only functions impeccably, but is also able to offer a series of diverse spaces; a living building where children can dream and be happy”.
