Pre School Introduction

    • Preschool in Milan includes two levels: daycare (asilo nido) and kindergarten (scuola dell'infanzia)
    • Daycare (asilo nido) accepts children who are at least 90 days old. Costs vary according to the number of hours children can attend and the particular nursery, but fees are usually lower when the facility is operated by the City of Milan. Priority is given to the children of parents who are unemployed or in a low-income bracket
    • Kindergarten (scuola dell'infanzia) accepts children who are 3-6 years old and have not yet attended primary school. Attendance at City-run kindergartens (scuola dell'infanzia) are free of charge, although a contribution is requested from families for transportation and meals
Pre School enrollment

In Italy, the school year starts in September and ends in June. For children up to age 3, there is daycare (asilo nido). For children ages 3 to 6, there is kindergarten (scuola dell’infanzia). School enrollment usually occurs in the first months of the year.

Parents can check dates for enrollment and enroll their children in daycare by visiting comune.milano.it, and searching “Nidi d'Infanzia e Sezioni Primavera: iscrizione” (Nurseries of Childhood and Spring Sections: Registration). For enrolling in kindergarten (scuola dell’infanzia), go to comune.milano.it and search “Scuola dell'Infanzia: iscrizione” (Nursery School: Registration).
