A course designed for parents that want to refresh their English and bring their child. In the morning the parent studies with the Homelingua teacher and the child joins a summer day camp at a local nursery school. Homelingua only work with quality nursery schools and summer camp centres. Outside of lesson time, the parent is responsible for the child.

Child students need a minimum intermediate level of English. The exact content of the summer day camp course will vary depending on what is available in the teacher’s local area. Typically nursery schools accept students from 3-5 years old. Summer activity centres accept older children.
