Today, the kindergarten serves to protect and protect the most at risk children, many reported by village representatives and social workers, looking after them for 8 hours a day. The kindergarten is the only center authorized to remain open until 16, usually these facilities close at 12.30, offering two meals a day. In the morning the children participate in curricular activities, while in the afternoon they are involved in recreational, recreational, manual and sporting activities.

The educational path is based on simple and practical activities and the game is always present as a teaching method, together with music and dance. A lot of attention is given to the care of health and hygiene of the body: learning to brush your teeth, hands and face, learning to wash your body and dressing yourself. The kindergarten also offers a path to the families of children; specific meetings and seminars are proposed focusing on the educational role of the family and the protection of children. Even students who have completed the course of studies in past years are not forgotten: for them there is a follow-up program that provides for monitoring in the primary schools they attend.
