Children have the best conditions to be creative, since they are spontaneous, open and curious about the world around them.

Since many skills, like language, still have to be learned, creativity is one of the most important forms of expression.

We, in the nursery emil, want to provide possibilities, space and time to facilitate these important skills. Reform-educators like Maria Montessori and Loris Malaguzzi from the Reggio-Pädagogik discovered early on how important independent actions are for the development of children. This independence facilitates creativity and, of course, the self-confidence of the children. Therefore our work is influenced by many of their ideas about educational philosophies.

With a loving and open child-care we want to create an environment for creativity. The nursery is a place for independence, where children can collect their own experiences. Here we focus on the cooperation of many different skills – everyone learns from each other.



The nursery emil is situated in the east of Innsbruck, at Schützenstraße 66, and possesses capacious, bright and friendly rooms with their own space to rest, move, cook and play.

In total, the children have two group rooms, 1 joint exercising room, as well as the garden. The children can develop themselves on about 200 square meters.

Emil is open all year for children between 18 months of age and the Kindergarten admission. If necessary the children can use the offer of a balanced lunch.

In our groups with children of mixed age (maximum of 12 children in one group) the “frogs” and “mice” can play, laugh, run, rest and learn together and from each other, as well as many other activities.
