Welcome to BAPS

Welcome to BAPS Dear Parents and Visitors to our school,

Thank you for expressing an interest in BAPS. It gives me great pleasure to welcome you as a prospective member of our school community.

I know that choosing the right nursery for your child is a very personal and important decision.

More and more parents want to give their children the opportunity to become truly bilingual and to embrace our globalized world.

Our English Immersion Programme is designed to start your child on their journey to a bilingual life with all the joys that this will bring. Our goal is to foster the early childhood developmental milestones and to build your child’s love for learning while becoming fluent in another language!

Nursery school children are the perfect age to begin learning a second language. Studies have shown that children who learn a second language during the preschool years go on to speak more fluently than those who begin to learn at an older age. In addition, bilingual children tend to be more creative, have better critical thinking skills and a better understanding of humanity and culture. One of the reasons young children learn a new language so easily is because they learn through exploration and play.

I have always been a firm believer that a child’s first experience of ‘school’ is crucial for laying the foundations on which they build their future education. The nursery years need to be a time when learning and fun go hand in hand within a stimulating environment. We are dedicated to building independence, self-confidence and a love for language and culture. These goals are met with the guidance of devoted native speaking professionals passionate about education.

BAPS is family-run and has been providing pre-school education, in English in Milan since 1987. My job is a delight: fun, rewarding and a huge privilege.
I look forward to welcoming you and your child and to personally showing you around our school.
