THE STIVALETTO COMMUNITY WAITS FOR YOU

A network of families that organizes activities for children, parents and all people
who live in the Netherlands and share a love of Italian culture.

LO STIVALETTO - WHO WE ARE

 

We are a network of families united by a love for the Italian language and culture. We are a non-profit foundation – Lo Stivaletto Foundation – based in Amsterdam that offers activities in Italian to give children and adults living in the Netherlands the opportunity to be together and share experiences and friendships.

We organize every activity thanks to the creativity, talent and professionalism of an energetic team of educators, collaborators and volunteers, reinvesting every profit in the boot.

We like all people, even those who eat pizza with pineapple. This is why we chose to use a inclusive language and introduce the schwa – ǝ – in our texts to indicate anyone without defining anyone.

These are the our values:
Community | Family | Italianity | Cultural exchange
If you share them too, join the big Lo Stivaletto family!

Promuoviamo la cultura italiana tra bambini e genitori

The boot is awesome!

The organized courses are very interactive and instructive. my daughter loves teachers, she always has a lot of fun and above all she spends precious time with other Italian children, learning to express herself better in Italian.

Win Win Win!

Our daughter loves the lessons! The fact that you can approach music and at the same time speak Italian and meet Italian-speaking children is a win-win-win for us 🙂 Thank you very much!

Learning by playing

The Stivaletto is a wonderful way to learn Italian and many other things while playing. Children are understood, involved and encouraged. They draw, write, play, invent stories and illustrate them, all in a very light, fun and at the same time very professional way. Beautiful experience that my daughter has already said she wants to continue for the next school year.

Learn and make new friends

Ideal environment to learn to communicate and express yourself better in Italian, and make new friends. Our daughter has been going to the Stivaletto for years, always with great pleasure 🙂
