Where do we meet with our children?

Our main goal is to meet in places where our children can have fun while at the same time engaging in activities in the Italian language. Below are places where we meet regularly.
The BBC is run by parents who volunteer to organize meetings and events. Below you can see a number of locations a few of us chose. To suggest a location for our next meetup, please email bostonbambinoclub@gmail.com
 
             
     
 

La Casa dei Bimbi Playspace
La Casa dei Bimbi is a playgroup and indoor playspace for children with at least one parent Italian mother-tongue. We meet in two locations: in Cambridge and in Arlington.
At La Casa dei Bimbi, the playgroup leader will provide a combination of free play and structured play for the children, divided into groups by age. Because La Casa dei Bimbi is a non-profit playgroup, all participants will be asked to help supervise one or more activities (e.g. clean-up) and to help with small admin tasks (e.g. asking other parents to sign a form).

LeggiAMO Insieme Meetings
The aim of the meetings, run by BBC members in collaboration with Piccola Italia Preschool, is to make the children in our group discover the pleasure and fun of reading in Italian. If you are interested in running the meetings in your local library, please send an email to Gaia. She will be happy to help you do that.

Host a picnic playdate at your local park
It is the easiest way to get together with our kids. Most parks have playgrounds, they have loads of space for kids to run around, they are safe and they make it easy for everyone to eat and drink. Many parks in Boston have a shaded barbecue area where people can sit and have lunch.
