What a Fun Start to our New Year!

If you haven't had a chance to join us this season, we are having a lot of fun!  Our Little Ladybirds spent last week making their own ladybirds to take home...

And this week, we are reading "The Hungry Caterpillar" and making refrigerator magnet caterpillars!

 We will be making them again on Friday morning and Monday afternoon.  See you there!

Welcome Back Ladybirds!

We are resuming our playgroups starting Wednesday – September 18th from 10:00 – 12:00 at All Saints Church.  

If you haven’t joined us in the past, we are an English Speaking playgroup who welcomes members from all over the globe with varying language abilities.  We enjoy the company of other parents while our children play, sing and craft together.  There is no registration cost or paperwork – simply come to the group when you choose - the cost is 5 euro for each child and adults are free.  The ages of the children tend to vary, but the majority are infants and toddlers.  Please bring a small snack to share for the children (for example a packet of crackers, a piece of fruit or a bottle of juice) or something for the parents (cakes, cookies, etc).

Our playgroup begins with snack time/ free play (and coffee for the parents) and then we start “circle time” where we sing our favorite songs in English.  Afterwards, we will often have a simple craft or art activity that you can participate in if you choose. 

Please remember that your child is totally your responsibility during the playgroup.

Our group meets every Wednesday and Friday morning from 10 – 12 and every Monday afternoon from 16 – 18 at All Saints Church, Via del Babuino 153, which is located between metro stops Piazza di Spagna and Piazza del Popolo.  Look for the signs on the church indicating the entrance.

We look forward to seeing you.

Playgroup Start Date

We are excited to get back to playgroup and see old friends – and make some new ones too!

At this time, we are waiting for the resolution of a few issues with the church as they kindly work to provide us with the safest environment possible for our children.  We are hoping to start our playgroup next week, but we will have to wait until the end of this week for confirmation of the exact date we can start.  

Thank you for the patience.  All updates will be posted here as soon as they are available.,

In the meantime, Ladybirds has a job opening!  We are looking for the right person (a native English speaker) to facilitate our circle time for our Monday afternoon group.  The position requires very little set up/clean up, but you will be leading the songs and helping set up the craft.  It is a paid position.  If you – or someone you know – is interested, please write to:
