Our 'CIAO BAMBINI' 8-week Italian preschool program uses a hands-on, immersion-based approach to learning that promotes communication and active participation. Children are exposed to Italian vocabulary and expressions through play and exploration, including games, songs and rhymes, music, movement, and visual aids. We enhance language learning by using cultural tools to build Italian language proficiency in an authentic and meaningful way. The length of each session is 90 min. This is an intensive 8-week immersion program comprising 1.5 hours each Saturday with varied enrichment activities spaced out every 20 mins in class for ease of flow. ** GainVille will be closed during MEMORIAL weekend (MAY 28-30). No Italian class will be available the weekend after. ** OPTIONAL: Only the first held class on April 23 will take place between 9:30 to 11:00am Substitute classes will be held on May 21 and June 4 as Ms. Antonia will be in Napoli. Ms. Anna Maria will teach the class in her absence.
