Last day of term today, but I can be contacted via mobile, webpage and Facebook if you need information about the opportunities for full time daily lessons for your child next year.

Restarts on January 9th 2012.

Despite an attempted break in and flooding from the apartments above us, we have had a successful start to the new Centre and welcome enquiries from parents with children aged 4+

The children performed a lovely Christmas Concert for their parents, despite only having a short time to rehearse, and have enjoyed a visit from Father Christmas at their party!

We shall be singing carols with the Callao Community in the Plaza on Friday 23rd December from 7.15pm.

Based on our fantastic week at Easter when 22 children joined in our activities, we are planning to make the time as fun filled as possible - purposeful play! I am conscious that many parents want their kids to keep studying, but I like to sneak up on the children so they don't realise they are working!

The children may help to decide the topics they want to study but that will depend on the age and capabilities of the group involved. I like the children to feel they have input into their activities. If you look at our photos you will see the sort of thing we have done in the past, such as making a puppet show and creating a town.

The topics I have in mind to kick start us are 'Under the Sea' and 'Pirates' but the choice is endless! The Diamond Jubilee and Olympics in UK are also events that would make for interesting activities.

At 11.00 we will be stopping for snack time, and around 1.00 will be time for packed lunches, all of
which the parents provide. We have a fridge available at the centre to store food safely.

Here is a provisional daily timetable:

9.00-10.00 play activities at the centre to practise English and maths skills - socialisation - conversation
10.00-11.00 sporty games at Atlantic Hotel tennis court
11.00 - 1.00 English skills based on topic chosen for the week - reading, writing & listening skills
1.00 - 3.00 art & craft activities
3.00 - 4.00 playtime

Children can be dropped off & collected at any time between 9 - 4, and the charges are as follows:
€2.50 per hour
€15 per day
€70 per week ( to be paid in advance on Monday morning)

Hope to see you and your children in July and August!

This week we are pleased to welcome three new students to Callao Learning Centre for the summer. Efim, Kostya and Vasilisa have come from Russia for a holiday and to learn English.

Eelis and Saku will be heading back to Finland for their summer holidays. Hope you have a great time!

The Centre is looking forward to many other children joining us for study sessions and play activities all through the summer. Just contact us for times and dates that fit in with your holiday plans, and to give the children a head start in their lessons when they go back to school in September.

The study sessions are independent from the activity timetable, and can be arranged to suit individual needs.
