Italian Classes for Children & Youth

PLEASE NOTE As Il Centro is currently closed as a proactive precautionary measure against Covid-19, Children & Youth classes are currently being offered online via Zoom and Padlet.

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 also offer a 2.5 to 5 years old program, which is held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings.

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

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