Give your child the bilingual edge!

Our Primi Passi and Piccoli Amici are perfectly designed for children to have a great time while learning Italian. Each class is organized around fun theme-based units that combine singing, movement, interactive exercises and arts & crafts. Our Parlo Italiano classes for older children, emphasize communication and vocabulary building as well as pronunciation and basic grammar skills.

The format of our kids classes combined with the passion and drive of our native-speaking teachers encourages a love for Italian from a young age! Studies have shown that learning a foreign language enriches a child's cognitive development which can enhance a child’s overall school performance.

NEW CLASS! Italian & Art - Join us for a fun series of Italian language and art classes for kids ages 4+. This four-week course is led by an expert artist and language teacher from Italy that will guide students each week through the creation of an art project inspired by a famous artist while learning and speaking Italian. Students will also learn basic notions of Art History as well as interesting stories about famous artists. This course combines painting, drawing and Italian language together so kids can be creative while learning! All proficiency levels welcome. Class is presented in Italian and English. A small material fee will be payable directly to the teacher on the first day of class and is not included in the course fee.
