The Istituzione Educazione e Scuola (Education and School Institution) is a City of Bologna organisation which, as of the 2014/15 school year, has been managing educational and school services for children of 0 to 6 years of age, and other out-of-school educational services for pre-adolescents, including summer services for children of from 3 to 14 years of age.
The IES manages the city council services by promoting the integration of public services (health, social and educational) and associations within the city area that operate in the socio-educational sector.
With this perspective in mind, new parental information and contact strategies were launched for those with newborns and children from 0 to 2 years of age who do not attend traditional educational services, also putting in place new information and guidance projects for new parents whilst actively promoting contact with the social situations that require the same.
The Trame Educative Project also foresees the increase in activities and the organisation of innovative initiatives in the Centri per Bambini e Famiglie (Children and Family Centres) in the City of Bologna, in conjunction with other public service Centres (Centro per le famiglie, Centro Interculturale Zonarelli, Case della salute Ausl, Consultorio Ausl per donne immigrate) and in collaboration with the Trame Educative project partners.
