I am naming a Reggio-Inspired preschool, can you help create a name in Italian?

The Reggio-Emilia philosophy comes from a region of Italy. I could like something simple, pretty/melodic in its sound. Perhaps like The School of Light (or something that translates to "belonging to the light")

Answer on I am naming a Reggio-Inspired preschool, can you help create a name in Italian?

The literal translation for "the school of light" is "la scuola della luce" and for "belonging to the light" is "appartenente alla luce". But maybe they're too long and complicated, don't suit to a preschool. "Lucciola" means "firefly" and sounds cute in Italian. Another hint could be the female name Lucia (pronounce "loo-chee-a"), which means "bright/shining" and also "born in the first light of the morning". Hope I helped, somehow :)
