Why is it Easier for Kids to Learn a Second Language?

Childhood is a “critical period” for language development, according to scientists. Kids’ brains soak up language like sponges, putting them at a linguistic advantage. Learning a new language is just more difficult for us adults.


Combining a quality early childhood education with a Spanish immersion program gives our students a leg up in their education and their lives. For parents who value multilingualism – beginning their child's formal learning with an immersion preschool is a natural fit. During this time, children’s brains are hard-wired for language learning and pick it up naturally. Bilingual children expand their awareness of the world and gain significant cognitive benefits. For students from Spanish-speaking homes, a Spanish-immersion education helps keep the family’s cultural heritage alive. There are many benefits of multilingualism and we are proud to support our students on their journey.
