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.

A detailed overview of our Italian Classes for Children and Youth 2015-2016 School Year is available.

Every Tuesday morning  little ones can enjoy the Italian for Toddlerclass, a specialized program for children aged 18 to 36 months. We also offer a Scuola d’Infanzia for ages 2 to 5, which is held four times a week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning and on Tuesday afternoon.

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

One of the most important events we are proud to organize every year  is the School Christmas Concert. This year the Kids Concert took place on December 8th and it was highly appreciated by parents and the attending audience.

In March 2014 we hosted our second annual Spring Break Camp. In collaboration with The Vancouver Opera we offered a pilot project where children aged 6-9 worked alongside two teaching artists, to create and perform an original, one act opera. The five-day Italian full-immersion program, whose pinnacles were pasta and pizza cooking by the children, was a real success, fully enjoyed by our students and highly appreciated by their parents.   

Believing in the old saying: “Mens sana in corpore sano”, which literally translates to “Healthy spirit in healthy body”, we celebrate this harmonious communion with a special spring event: the Sports Day. This year the Sports Day will be on May 28 at Il Centro. During the event, all of our students, symbolically dressed in the colors of the Italian flag, are going to take part in four memorable races: corsa dei fagioli, corsa di calcio, corsa delle spugne, corsa alla moda. Everyone will enjoy an unforgettable day full of fun.

In the summer it has become a tradition for us to offer Vacanze in Italiano a two-week Italian full immersion program for children. Cooking, theater,  art and craft classes are just some of the highlights awaiting the little ones to enjoy.

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