Program for parents and children together

(Starting again in February 2022)

On Mondays at 10:30- 12:00 we offer lessons called Learning Icelandic through music– it is a music session for parents with babies where we do a routine of singing, dancing and playing in Icelandic. It is a good way of spending a quality time with your little one and learning Icelandic at the same time.

On Tuesdays at 16:00- 17:00 we have an international kids choir for 3- 6 year old kids with parents. We start with a story time and then a 40 min session of singing both in Icelandic and other languages .
