Italian Classes for Children & Youth

The Italian School offers separate levels of classes for children and youth based on age, maturity level and knowledge of Italian. Our objective is to inspire a strong passion for our language, culture and traditions.

Classes are held at Il Centro on Saturday morning or afternoon and on weekdays at our Outreach locations throughout the Lower Mainland.

Two specialized programs for children aged 18 to 36 months: Italian for Toddlers class on Tuesday mornings or Filastrocche on Saturday mornings.

We have also a child care, Scuola d’Infanzia “L’Albero Magico”, inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy.

In addition to the Italian classes, our weekly activities entertain our students, who, while having tons of fun, experience a full language immersion.

Every second and third week of July we offer “Vacanze in italiano” summer camp. Take a look to our program and sign up for one or two weeks as far in advance as possible. Limited spots available.

To stay updated with our events, please check our School Calendar.

Description

Scuola d'infanzia L'albero Magico is our child care, open to children 30-months-old to School Age.

Our Scuola d’Infanzia is inspired by the Reggio Emilia Philosophy, an innovative approach to early childhood education. The Reggio Philosophy makes the child central to their own learning. Each child is seen as being full of potential and curiosity. Peaking that innate curiosity, the Reggio Emilia Approach aims to assist them in understanding their environment and their place within it. In a supportive and rich setting, children are allowed to explore and discover their interests which will form their specific and individualized curriculum. Observation and documentation are important elements for teachers who act as equal partners in the child’s education.

The daycare is open Monday to Friday. Hours of operation are from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

You can choose to enroll your child 3 to 5 days per week and choose from one of the following schedules:

  • Mornings (8:30 - 12:00)
  • Afternoons (1:00 - 4:30)
  • All day (8:30 - 4:30)

A $100 registration fee (non-refundable) will be charged once a year.
