My daughter has attended La Coccinella Italian preschool since age 2 (she is now 4). She loves it!!!  She brings home new songs and even dances. Being able to integrate the Italian language and culture into our home has enriched all our lives.  We particularly enjoy the range of arts and crafts that you integrate into every lesson and are always excited by the beautiful creations she brings home from every lesson and proudly displays in our house.

Your infectious enthusiasm and love of the language, music and culture is matched by your staff. You have created a wonderful structured and safe learning environment.

Thanks to your School our daughter is growing into a confident, vivacious and intelligent young girl.

Stephie told me that the concert was one of the the best days of her life! You have done a remarkable job with all the children over the year! Your dedication to teaching is remarkable.

My little girl loves the music, activities and interaction in Italian with the other children. I would highly recommend La Coccinella to children of both Italian and non-Italian speaking backgrounds. A great way to introduce your child to a second language.

We’ve taken Dora’s Italian classes for 4 years. She’s taught both my children over that time and we’re sad to be leaving her behind as my youngest starts school next year. Their Italian teacher at school is impressed with their skill level, especially as we’re not from Italian heritage. Learning Italian at school was a natural progression for them as they had an excellent foundation thanks to Dora and the team at La Coccinella. The songs, activities and craft have made learning fun for them. They both have lovely pronunciation and a good understanding of the meaning of the sentences they’ve learned. I have a feeling we’ll be calling Dora again for tutoring classes as they continue to expand their learning in the future.

Grazie Dora!

Alessia has been attending La Coccinella since she was 8 months old. Now 6 months on and I can see that she understands when I speak to her in Italian and sing her songs at home that we sing in class, especially “mettiamo tutto a posto.” That certainly captures her attention! Alessia has always been an alert child and Dora has given Alessia a perfect avenue to express herself, develop her personality and the opportunity to spend time in a structured learning environment which will benefit her in so many ways throughout her school years. Grazie Tanto!

La Coccinella is a tremendous way to immerse your child in the Italian Language in an entertaining and engaging way.  The Native speaking staff are committed to ensuring, through a combination of music, song, dance, story time, art and craft and games, that learning this beautiful language is a rewarding and fun experience for both child AND adult.

“I am so happy I decided to send Leon to La Coccinella. In the 1.5 years he has been going to class, he has demonstrated how much he actually understands Italian. At home he randomly uses some words or sings lines to songs he has learnt in class. Much of this is a testament to the hard work Dora and the team put into creating a conducive learning environment and a space that the kids feel comfortable and welcome. Now, I look forward to enrolling my daughter and watching her grow through the same process. Thank you!”

We just attended our first session at Coccinella. The teachers are just wonderful! They create an immersive environment for learning Italian which is really engaging and fun. It is all very hands on and designed to stimulate imaginations. Our session included diverse activities based on the theme of the sea, combining lots of singing, conversation, dancing, movement, storytelling, simulated play, and even painting.

I really enjoyed the session what impressed me was the morning’s content. It was professionally run and I walked away feeling that I had made the right choice for Luca.

“Attending La Coccinella with my little one since she was 6 months old has helped her personality shine through, interact confidently with other children as well as keep our Italian heritage alive. I love singing the songs and speaking Italian with my daughter, she is now 15 months old and I can already see the benefits.”
