About Us

“Corte Verde-social cooperative society- ONLUS” is a social cooperative established in 2003 situated in Via Levata n. 30 in Levata di Curtatone, in the province of Mantova (Italy).

“Corte Verde” ONLUS, examined the local social reality of Mantova, has intended to integrate since 2003 the existing social-educative services in a farm.

In the rural nursery “corte Verde”, active from September 2004, children can experiment a direct contact with the natural environment, with the country and animals that live in it, enjoying an educational proposal designed to promote the transmission of many and varied skills at a motoric, cognitive, linguistic, relational, cultural and ecological level, through the discover of the surrounding rural environment.

The facility, fully thought suitable for children, is equipped with large fenced green areas, two big sections, big and low windows and every kind of comfort for our little users.

At the rural nursery “Corte Verde” has been developed the educational project “Rural nursery: the nursery in a rural environment” since 2004, strengthening the educational-didactic propositions to respect the main purposes of the service of the nursery.

This project-attended by the educators of the nursery-is mainly oriented to the 2-3 years old section children, who have the possibility to concretely experiment the reality of the country during the different seasons through a direct observation lab of the country and all the activities carried out in the surrounding farm.

“Corte Verde”, in fact, has daily understood- through the execution of the nursery service- the importance for the children to make “concrete discoveries” and the wish of parents that children get close to the natural world doing direct experiences of the surrounding country. 

The nursery “Corte Verde” annual scheduling born from the origins of the service itself: the rural and challenging nature in which it is located ensures that the surrounding environment is the main inspiration on which the teachers are based to create educational activities that involve the child in his entirety.

Each activity focuses on the natural time in which it is performed. Children will not be asked for something that does not have a concrete reference in the surrounding environment and that will not be easily discoverable looking out the windows of the nursery.

The cooperative “corte Verde” has been managing a new social-educative structure since September 2010 – designed from the cooperative itself- named nursery “Ape Maia” in street E. Montale, 21/1, Romanore, Borgo Virgilio (MN).

The nursery “Ape Maia”, thanks to an agreement stipulated on the 24thApril 2010 between the cooperative “Corte Verde”, the district of Borgoforte and the company Novellini S.p.A., has proposed as an educative and social service to ensure a real support to the family, supporting a more rapid return of parents to work with a calmer attitude, guaranteeing the conciliation between the family responsibilities and the work commitments.

Since the requirement of having services dedicated to childhood and families has been recognized in Europe, “Corte Verde” doesn’t want to isolate itself thanks to the local recommendation but – also thanks to this web site- it wants to dedicate itself to anexchange of ideas, information, knowledge that contribute to the knowing and development of new national and European practices and politics pointed towards childhood.
