A NEW GENERATION OF LEARNING
Acorn House provides quality education for children since 1999. We are an English speaking international association with mother tongue, highly qualified teachers and pride ourselves on being an inclusive schooling system which supports children according to their needs. The school is also affiliated with primary schools and teachers training centres in the UK and in Italy, enabling us to keep up-to-date with curriculum and standards issues. We also provide a deep immersion in the Italian culture and school system, by following a stimulating bilingual English/ Italian curriculum that develops around both curriculum requirements. Our children attend yearly government exams, in order to allow families, the freedom of the choice amongst two different learning path and supporting any possible sudden change that parents may encounter due to international work mobility and relocation. The foundations of learning and the security of independence that we support from an early age continue through to all levels of ability and learning for each child. We co-ordinate a dual curricula programme and learning activities with one another, in order to prepare children for their passage into the next key stage level of learning, encompassing a spiral curriculum. We care for the happiness, health and confidence of each of our student encouraging each child to build a positive relationship with him/herself.
AHI offers an innovative and dynamic learning program covering Early Years KS1, KS2 and recently also KS3. The decision to extend the work done in these first 15 years at Acorn House allowed us to cover the learning itinerary progressively and continuously from 2 to 14 years old, in line with the recent Italian National Educational Guidelines, facilitating the link with the second educational cycle.
We are RISA AFFILIATE MEMBER since 2005.
