Children's centre

Nursery and pre-school classes on the University premises


In the area of via Filippo Re a new structure will be built with capacity to house two nursery and two pre-school sections catering for almost 100 children in total. The University of Bologna aims to ensure continuity between nursery and pre-school, provide a childcare service to its employees, form a partnership with the municipal government and deepen university research on the subject.



In the first months of the current year, AUTC completed the final design of the Children's Centre before approving the working drawings. After obtaining the necessary municipal authorisations, the tender notice will be published with the aim of starting the works in 2019 and completing them in time for the 2020-2021 academic year. A Scientific Committee has been established, with members appointed by the Rector, in order to coordinate the building and educational projects. At the same time, agreements have been concluded with the Bologna municipal government to share this initiative, which on the one hand provides a great help to University of Bologna employees and on the other contributes to enriching the public offering.
