    Default English-Italian Bilingual Child Care in Sydney??

    Hello all,


    We are looking for a day care in Sydney where our baby boy could carry on some Italian language spoken in the house by me that I am Italian mother language.


    Does anyone know or heard about Child Care Centres in Sydney where Italian is spoken and taught?

    Thank you !!

    Ciao

    I don't know but have you considered calling your local Italian Club or Italian language school as they might be able to give you a referral.

    Not sure if you are wedded to centre care or not but family daycare might have bilingual carer options too.

    BTW I think it's a great idea to send your child to a bilingual daycare.

    Ciao Jump,
    I was wondering if you ever found an Italian language day care or playgroup in Sydney? I am in the same situation... we speak Italian at home but our twin 18 month old boys now need to have contact with other children who speak Italian.

    I have been looking for Italian speaking families in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney but have not had any luck yet!

    Grazie,
    matie000 (Gino)

    Default Italian childcare in Sydney

    Hi,
    Is there any update about an english-Italian bilingual childcare or family day care in Sydney?
    I am an italian Mum and am looking to increase the exposure to Italian for my 18month boy.
    I am also interested in meeting Italian speaking families with children, Italian playgroups, Italian mothers' groups or Italian nannies (even to share with other Italian children).

    Thank you
    Elena

    Ciao Elena,Ho visto il suo annuncio. Non so dove abita a Sydney, ma ho appena trovato un ottimo playgroup italiano che si riunisce ogni venerdì dalle 9.30 alle 11.30 a Waverley (vicino a Bronte).


    Il gruppo si chiama Ciao Mamma, e la coordinatrice si chiama Luciana de Michiel email: luciana.de.michiel@gmail.com Tel. 0415 939 205


    Il gruppo ha luogo nella sala d'attività accanto alla chiesa Mary Immaculate, 34a Victoria St. Waverley Il costo è $5.


    È veramente buono questo gruppo. Ci sono di solito tra 8 - 10 bambini tra 2 - 5 anni e tutti parlano italiano insieme, giocano bene insieme e alla fine del periodo cantano delle canzoncine italiane. È così buono che i miei gemelli di 3 anni non vogliono più tornare al loro solito playgroup inglese! L'ultimo incontro del anno sarà venerdì 19 dic. e poi rincomincerà verso la prima o seconda settimana di gennaio.


    Se vorrebbe maggior informazione può contattare Luciana direttamente.


    Spero che questo sia d'aiuto e forse ci vedremo lì un giorno!
    Cordiali saluti,
    Gino

    Grazie mille Gino.
    Ho scoperto questo playgroup qualche mese fa e ho fatto in tempo ad andarci una volta prima di tornare al lavoro a tempo pieno.
    Sono d'accordo, e' fantastico, Luciana e' bravissima e non vedo l'ora di tornarci l'anno prossimo quando saro' di nuovo in maternita'.
    Spero di incontrarci.
    Grazie ancora,
    Elena
