Since many skills, such as language, must first be learned, creativity is one of the most important forms of expression for children.

We, the team from the nursery emil, would like to give them opportunities, space and time to develop this important skill. Reform pedagogues like Maria Montessori and Loris Malaguzzi from the Reggio pedagogy recognised early how important own actions are for the child’s development. Through this self-activity, creativity is encouraged and children’s self-esteem is also strengthened. That is why many ideas of these educational philosophies flow into our work.

Through loving, open care we want to create a climate where creativity is possible. The nursery is a place where self-doing should be possible and children can make their own experiences. In our nurseries, many different skills work together – everyone learns from each other.


The nursery emil is located in the east of Innsbruck at Schützenstraße 66. We are equipped with spacious, very bright and friendly rooms with areas for resting, moving, cooking and extensive play.

We have two group rooms, one common exercise room, one restaurant for the open snack and lunch and one large garden at the children’s disposal. The children can unfold in the nursery on 200 square metres.

emil is open all year round for children from 18 months to kindergarten entry age. If required, the children can make use of the lunch menu.

In our two mixed-age small groups, the “mice” and “frogs” the children can play and laugh together, romp and rest, learn from and with each other and much more. Furthermore, a maximum of 12 children can be in a group at the same time.

The rooms are designed in such a way that play materials are kept within reach of the children. There are areas for retreat and rooms for movement. Areas in the individual group rooms invite the children to be creative. We offer play materials that stimulate the senses. We also offer imaginative play materials that are changeable and can be used creatively in a variety of ways.

The meals are suitable for children, balanced and varied.

We show consideration for allergies, intolerances, dislikes, religious or ideological eating habits.
