Research suggests that multilinguals find it easier to acquire language skills, and these skills bring all kinds of benefits.
Children who return to preschool can communicate with other students and teachers and improve their vocabulary. They can take part in social activities, interact with others, and learn new skills in a communicative environment.
This winter has been tough for all of us, but our qualified instructors continued to provide learning opportunities for our incredible students. Now we’re opening the doors and heading outside, with a greater focus on outdoor learning that inspires language immersion success.
Feliz año nuevo! Another year, another preschool enrolment period. This month, some parents in the Bay Area will enroll their little ones in Spanish language immersion programs so they can reap the brilliant benefits of being bilingual.
KSS (Kids Speaking Spanish) Preschool has remained without COVID-19 for over 100 days across all of our 5 locations. Thanks to teachers, staff, students, and parents, we have reduced the spread of the virus in our group learning environment — and will continue to do so.

Combining quality early childhood education with a Spanish immersion program gives our students a leg up in their education and their lives.
For the parents that value multilingualism - beginning their child's formal learning with an immersion preschool is a natural fit.
Not only does the knowledge of another languages help to keep the cultural heritage of the family alive, it also helps to provide the preschooler with advantages later in life. No doubt that being fluent in more than one language provides personal and professional opportunities in the future.
There are many benefits of multilingualism and we are so very proud to be a part of that for all our amazing students.
