Childcare & Kindergarten programme
A Minitalia Lab native Italian teacher can come each week and deliver the program at your Centre. We are also available to present one–off sessions.
Our teachers provide all of the equipment needed for each workshop.
We can provide sessions in the morning or the afternoon at a time that suits your routine.
We prefer that group numbers be limited to 15 children . This allows the Minitalia Lab teacher to provide individual attention to each child. We ask that a Carer participates in each group with the Minitalia Lab teacher so that the activities can be followed up with the children during the week.
Nursery 15 min session
This workshop will engage the little ones in a nursery time inspired by the book of the day. They shall be invited to hold appropriate material that introduces the subject of the day while a song is sung.
This should stimulate physical and emotional skills supporting cognitive development regarding the new language.
Toddlers 20 min session
The 20 minute workshop shall follow the program of the Nursery and Junior infants. Additional time will be devoted to inviting the children to talk more and engage with flash card to identify objects. Toddler will also make an art craft supporting the new language skills practiced during the workshop.
Kinder 30 min session
For these older children, the workshops are designed to develop social skills and to improve through play, music and craft ,the knowledge of the Italian language and culture.
Our explorer will read a story and make a project inspired by the illustrations, or artist on which the book is based. Children will participate actively to develop physical and creative skills.
