This small nursery school at Saint Ghislain street (a connecting street between Blaes straat and Hoogstraat), is designed by the Art Nouveau architect Victor Horta in 1885.
It was his first public commission.
It was finished in 1900.
Horta let himself be inspired by the principles of the “model school”, a collection of definitions created by the “Teaching Association” in 1852.
Classrooms were built around a covered and an open-air central playground.
The façade is asymmetric and consists out of different materials as wooden panels, ironwork, mouldings, mosaic and decorative elements
