The director is a maniacal lunatic. Many parents have take their kids out this year. Something is going on. Stay away! Can't retain teachers & they all leave crying. Director/ Owner (whatever you want to call her) is abusive and still nurses her 6 year old son. HELLO!!

You don??t have to be Italian to fall in love with Girotondo Italian School! Our family feels so fortunate to have stumbled upon it while researching our preschool options last year after we moved from San Francisco to Marin County.

One of the strengths we see in Girotondo, located in San Rafael, is its faculty. We greatly appreciate their warmth and love of children. The preschool??s teacher to student ratio of 1:4 allows our daughter to receive the guidance, resources and support to flourish. We also appreciate the strong sense of community and collaboration among the teachers and parents. We all work together to create the best possible experience for our children. Every child is recognized as an individual and truly treasured.

Girotondo is a natural extension of our family, teaching the values and ideals that are important to us. It is the only school we know that ??celebrates?? lunch. One of the most invaluable things to us is hearing Tatum say ??school is fun!? Since this is her first school experience, we love that the mention of Girotondo elicits such joy and excitement from her. An added bonus is that she is learning a second language. We are still in shock to hear our 2 year old conversing with her friends in Italian, after just 5 months at the school. We believe this unique opportunity to learn Italian at such a young age is one of the greatest gifts that we can give her.

Other advantages of the school include enrollment starting at 2 years old, up to 5 days per week, extended childcare hours (8am-5pm), low teacher to student ratios for all classes, no potty training requirement, lunches that are prepared onsite using fresh and organic ingredients, summer camps, and the monthly pajama nights that allow my husband and I to go out on dates again!

The website www.girotondoschool.org includes an impressive short video that will give you a real flavor for the school. If you are looking for a special and unique experience for you child, we encourage you to check out Girotondo!

Girotondo is a Reggio Emilia, Italian language immersion school and my daughter has been attending for over a year now. She LOVES school and her teachers. There is such a strong feeling of community and I cannot say enough about the quality of instruction, attention to detail and the well being of the kids.

Girotondo is a licensed school and a non-profit organization. Every penny goes into the school. They are planning to add first grade and taking steps to implement the International Baccalaureate curriculum. First Class all the way.

The school offers extended care and serves children organic, sugar free snacks and LUNCH!! I never have to worry about what she's eating. They also make a sugar-free vegan cake for birthdays.

There are art, music, and horticulture classes as well as after-school for the older kids.
