School Year 2016/2017
We have decided that the best route for our scuola, especially as a Reggio Emilia inspired school, is to include the community- the families, and the friends of The Sabatino Memorial Family Resource Center. So, we have decided to operate as a "Parent-Participation Co-operative Italian School"! It's exciting!
As a parent participation school, we will be asking for parents to volunteer their time and talents to our program when needed. Don't panic, working parents! We will work with you on this. There will be plenty of opportunities to help out. You can also ask a family member-grandparent, cousin, aunt, uncle etc. to "'work" just a few hours for you as well. This way, we will have your family represented, to work alongside our teachers and the children, once in awhile! We just need families during fundraising events, and to "sub" on occasion.
It "takes a village".......And as an Italian school, we feel there is nothing better than getting the family involved! In just a couple of hours of "parent"-participation, every couple of months, your family will have so many moments to enjoy together, with us.
Since we will have family volunteers on site with us often, and our staff is made up of mostly volunteer educators, the monthly donation/pledges that you make- are used to maintain this facility, purchase food, supplies, bring in musicians, dancers, artists, and other wonderful activities for the children. The monthly pledges will also be used to cover the cost of liability insurance. We consider these payments to be donations/pledges to our non-profit that houses the parent participation Italian School. Please make checks out to, "The HeartWorks Family Center", and put our tax ID number on the check; 31-1810184. Our 501 c 3 is in good standing in Nevada, and in California. We have been operative for nearly 15 years.
Your children will spend the day with degreed, caring educators, Italian language instructors, and family! What better education than that? We are also CPR/First Aid trained, and are covered by Nationwide Insurance for liability, pertaining to the children in our care.
Families have a right to choose the type of early childhood experiences their children have. We have an Italian School, and we want it to be successful. By encouraging families to be a viable part of this experience, we can't fail.
We begin school in September however, you may begin at ANY time! We are open Mon-Fri, 8:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Call about the dopo-scuola too!! We have 5 spots available beginning January, 2017 . Theresa 408-298-4278.
