We're a school for the whole family

Italiano per bambini? Sì, sì!

We think learning Italian should be fun for everyone. Our children’s classes are a wonderful place to start your child’s Italian education and feed their curiosity.

Why Kids Love Learning Here

Learning another language is not only fun but did you know it’s also good for your brain and can give you learning skills that will help throughout your life? Research shows learning a second language at an early age can boost problem-solving, critical-thinking, and listening skills, in addition to improving memory, concentration, and the ability to multitask. Children proficient in other languages also show signs of enhanced creativity and mental flexibility. 

At Collina Italiana, we are making learning fun through stories, games, activities and conversation. We create a lot of art as well as reading stories, singing and dancing. We focus on hands-on activities to keep kids engaged and excited about learning. They especially love learning the stories of our traditions and heritage. By the end of class, they can even tell you how a Margherita pizza came to be!
