Salita dal Noce
Perasso (close to the Pronto Soccorso of San Martino)
Tel. 010 377 8094
This private school takes over 3 year olds. Children must be potty trained. It is hard to get into this school and there is a long waiting list, but worth a try. Children are separated into age groups during the day. The youngest children have a nap area. No snacks before lunch which may be difficult for the very young ones.
Off Via Berghini

San Martino Hospital

You can get in touch with them through the hospital's operator: 010/5551.
