FONDAZIONE ITALIA is a California 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 1998 for the purpose of promoting the teaching of the Italian language and culture across Southern California. The organization receives grants from the government of Italy in support of its mission, and it works in close collaboration with the Consulate General of Italy in Los Angeles and the Education Office at the Italian Consulate in San Francisco.
Give your child the bilingual edge! Our “Parent & Me” and toddler classes 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 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. Our classes are held in Orange on the beautiful Chapman University campus.

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.
