Italian Playgroups

The Way Home – La strada di casa
Il Musical degli Italiani a Londra

Our Italian playgroups are currently on hold – we promise we will be back but for the time being we are still reorganising our charity. It is a lot of work, please bear with us.

In the meantime we are delighted to share that our own Eleonora and Anna are producing the first bilingual English/Italian Musical created for, with and by the Italian and British community in London.

Italian story & rhyme time for children under 4

Did you know that we launched our very first Italian playgroup in Greenwich in July 2017?
Since then, our weekly sessions have been a great success in more than fifteen different areas in London.

Our sessions are suitable for babies and toddlers who listen to stories and rhymes in Italian for the first time and are stimulated by lovely sensory activities as well as for pre-schoolers who improve their listening and attention and express themselves by singing, dancing and playing all together.

In March 2020 we decided to switch to online sessions due to the COVID-19 pandemic but in September 2021 we finally were able to go back to in-person classes.

IN-PERSON Italian Playgroups
Playgroup (0-4 yo) 

Italian rhymes and sensory play activities for little ones and their grown-ups. Young children learn best from consistent repetition, so we encourage you to keep singing and dancing to the same tunes day after day, week after week.

Masks will be required whilst you walk through the building and for the duration of the session in both venues. Further instructions will be included in the COVID-19 Risk Assessment which will be shared with all attendees.

ONLINE Italian Playgroups

We are currently taking a break from online sessions but we thought we’d ask for your opinion for the approaching Autumn term: would you still be interested in attending an online class?

Micro (0-2 yo) on Zoom

Italian rhymes and sensory play activities for little ones and their grown-ups. Each session will last 20 minutes. Young children learn best from consistent repetition, so we encourage you to keep singing and dancing to the same tunes day after day, week after week.

Mini (2-4 yo) on Zoom

Every week we will go on a new adventure, singing traditional Italian rhymes and using our imagination while learning and practicing Italian in a fun way!
Siblings and younger children are welcome but please note that activities are aimed at 2-4 year olds.

Make sure you sign up for email updates and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook.
