‘Little Hercules’ GREEK PLAYGROUP

An Innovative Greek Language Pre-School Program


AIM: Our aim is to develop a Greek Australian identity within children, helping them gain confidence in using the Greek language in their family environment and prepare them for further study HTAin Greek.

Our objectives are to enable children to:

  • be immersed in the Greek language and culture
  • develop skills that will enhance second-language learning
  • to enjoy learning the Greek language and culture in a bilingual environment
  • develop an appreciation of their cultural heritage

We believe that children benefit the most if they are immersed in the Greek language and culture. Therefore, the focus of our program is the Greek language, using simple communicative language to ensure that the children feel comfortable and understand instructions (especially at the early stage). We provide a fun-filled bilingual environment where children become involved in a range of learning experiences.

The Greek language is introduced gradually in a stimulating and enjoyable way, and children are encouraged to use Greek words and phrases in their speaking. The progress depends on the individual children but we believe that the more authentic Greek environment children are exposed to, the easier it is for them to learn the language.
