WHO WE ARE

Kindergarten with educational play in via Lanzi, Florence, Italy

Sant'Anna Institute is a recognised school for young children run by the Franciscan Sisters of the Transfiguration of the city of Florence. Every day in the bright and vibrant Lanzi street we educate children from 18 months old joyfully and creatively and are committed to promoting a comprehensive and challenging education programme. Our institute offers activities aimed at gradual learning through play, which works in tandem with the rhythms of child-development, in groups divided by age.

The school spaces

Our school building space adheres to strict laws that ensure maximum safety for children and adults, both with our indoor and outdoor play areas.
Rooms are furnished with functional and colourful objects and activities to stimulate the imagination and creativity of children. Outside is a garden with a soft floor, equipped with games and rides for outdoor learning through play.
The school is equipped with play areas suitable for different age groups, including a separate space for children aged between 18- 36 months and two kindergarten sections.

Learning through doing

Our teaching environment is serene, joyful, welcoming and ready to stimulate children's interests through a series of recreational and educational activities. Among the creative opportunities we offer children can enjoy educational games, theatre workshops, workshops for learning english and much more.
Our attentive staff will follow the lead of the children, allowing them the opportunity to develop their fine and gross motor skills and with activities designed to enhance learning at every stage of growth.

Summer Centre

In the quiet summer months from June to September we are closed but in July children can enjoy our special summer centre!
The school is transformed and we organise a huge variety of activities for the children to enjoy - a swimming pool, gazebo and plenty of outdoor water games to learn while having fun.
