The Pros and Cons of a Bilingual Preschool
A bilingual preschool has many advantages, but like all schools there are also things to consider before signing your child up to attend. These are listed out below.
The pros of a bilingual preschool are obvious. Children are taught from a young age to have skills speaking both languages, laying the groundwork for being bilingual if they so choose when they get older. This will be helpful when trying to socialize or find work in the future. It is also an open-minded approach to teaching a child about the rest of the world from a very young age.
The downside to a bilingual preschool may be confusion for children who are just learning to speak, however. By not focusing on one language, they may develop their main language more slowly, as their young minds are still trying to figure out how to speak in general, much less what language to choose.
Just something to consider before signing up.
