Pingu's English Italy launches their first international kindergarten in Milan

Latest News

Pingu’s English Italy have just launched their first branded international kindergarten in Milan – the largest one to open so far in Europe.

The recent launch of the new Pingu’s English kindergarten in San Giuliano Milanese was a great success. The high profile event was led by Mr Marco Segala, the local mayor. Mr Derek Price, Chief Executive Officer of the Linguaphone Group, Mr Daniele Arboit, General Manager for Pingu’s English Italy and Emilia Modica, Center Manager for the kindergarten in San Giuliano Milanese, also helped support the launch.


















This new kindergarten features state-of-the-art facilities including large, spacious and airy classrooms, with an extensive outside play-area. The kindergarten provides early years education and childcare facilities for children from 0-12 years old.

Pingu’s English is the leading international English language training and kindergarten franchise from the UK, that helps children speak English fluently before they start school. The global brand has already enrolled over a quarter of a million students worldwide through a network of franchise partners in twenty countries worldwide. Pingu’s English is already being delivered in markets including Italy, Thailand, Cyprus, Myanmar, Lithuania, Estonia, Cambodia, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Myanmar, Malaysia, Laos, Vietnam and Hong Kong.

Pingu’s English Italy – a growing force in the pre-school franchise market

Pingu’s English is a leading player in the pre-school education market in Italy. Led by Mr Daniele Arboit, over 60 schools nationwide already offer Pingu’s English’s four-level international English language training program to young children. This fun and trusted program focuses on developing a child’s confidence in the English language, as well as providing preparation for Cambridge Assessment English exams too.

Building on this success, Pingu’s English Italy will now introduce a brand new full-time international kindergarten program to the Italian pre-school market. This innovative three-year curriculum is developed by Linguaphone Group in collaboration with Kingston University, leaders in teacher training and early year’s development. The curriculum takes inspiration from all leading pedagogical theories including Montessori, Reggio Emilia and the Early Years Foundation Stage, and is the only program worldwide to feature Pingu!
















Appointing new Pingu’s English franchisees for Italy

Italian parents are increasingly looking for a respected and trusted kindergarten and English language training program for their children, with measurable outcomes too. Following the launch of this new kindergarten in Milan, Pingu’s English Italy is looking to appoint new partners to join their growing team nationwide, offering both of their tried and tested programs to the market. Entrepreneurs do not need to come from the education sector as comprehensive training and first-class business, teaching and marketing support will be provided.

We at the British Chamber of Commerce worked with Linguaphone Group to find them a new in-market partner for the Korean market. Throughout the engagement we had with Linguaphone Group, we found them to be passionate about education, supremely professional in their approach to business and both responsive and personable in their interactions with ourselves and Korean partners. Korean investors were attracted to the best-in-class program which Linguaphone Group offers, the strong reputation of the company and the heritage with which it is associated. These are qualities that resonate globally.

Our Experience with Pingu’s English has been profitable and positive from the first year. We relied on their professionalism and heritage, their staff is always prompt to assist with the latest trends and ideas on the market. We were looking for a brand who can guarantee us quality and a solid method but at the same time would leave us the freedom and flexibility in order to succeed in our challenging and competitive market like the Italian one. We built Pingu’s English project in Italy by mixing their huge international experience in the English training with our knowledge of the Italian market. All this enabled us to do the right decision for our winning investment. Today we have over 40 Pingu’s English centres and thousands of happy children learning English.

Regarding the teaching method they use a figurative storytelling way of starting the lesson,  trying hard to involve the child and make the them curious about the situation. Tom is very happy to go to Pingu’s English because he perceives the School as a playful moment and not just as a learning moment while at the same time he is learning a new language
