HOMEWORK HELP in Italiano 


Collina Italiana is continuing its work with American children and teens, enrolled at Italian school or in Italian programs, who desire homework help in Italiano in all subjects.

Giardino dei Bambini is a morning drop-off playgroup at CI for kids ages 2-4. Children may join in on the fun every Monday, Tuesday, and/or Thursday, from 9-11 am or 9-12 pm on an as needed basis.

Experienced instructors provide multiple opportunities for kids to learn Italian through play, while learning important socialization skills. The program offers language learning through games, activities, songs, dance, theater, and hands-on creativity (art projects.) Lastly, La Merenda (snack time) allows children the opportunity to converse on food routines in Italiano. Note: Space is limited.



GROUP CLASSES: All requests for full refunds must be submitted to Collina Italiana by email and received by CI prior to the first day of class. Prorated refunds are allowed after the first class but no refund is given after the second class. There is a $20 fee for mid-semester class changes. Please take into consideration that CI does not prorate any fee for missed classes.

PRIVATE CLASSES: The fee is charged in full if cancellation is made less than 24 hours in advance.
