Many of our testimonials focus on the quality of our teachers or Maestras at KSS Immersion Preschools. Parents tell us how our Maestras are “loving,” “patient” and “positive” toward their children who enroll in our Spanish language preschool. So what is it about teachers that is so vital in early childhood education? Let’s take a look at the importance of teachers for learning and development.
Teachers Play Many Roles
Teachers are more than just educators. They can be counselors and role models and often have a lifelong impact on students. Enrolling your child in a language immersion preschool is full of new experiences. The right teachers can welcome your child into a new learning environment and provide you with peace of mind.
Teachers Provide a Support System
Teachers can act as a support system for young learners as they immerse themselves in a language-based program. They encourage students to try new things and embrace challenges. Teachers inspire learners to dream bigger. They provide ongoing guidance, helping children realize their learning goals.

Teachers Improve Self-Esteem
Teachers at a bilingual preschool can help your child engage with other learners, to learn new grammar and vocabulary, and understand complicated language concepts. All of that can improve your child’s self-esteem and make them a more independent and confident young person.
Teachers Can Unlock Your Child’s Full Potential
Teachers will spend a significant amount of time with your child throughout a language immersion program. During that time, relationships will develop that will promote better learning outcomes. A Spanish language teacher might uncover a child’s hidden talent, for example, or nurture a specific skill. Teachers can also use learning strategies for children who struggle to understand components of an immersion program.

A Preschool Teacher Can Make Your Child a More Productive Citizen
Teacher impact goes beyond early childhood development. The right teacher can help your child learn attributes like empathy, sympathy and tolerance — qualities that children often carry into adulthood. That can help your child develop into a productive citizen when they get older.
Teachers Can Improve Language Acquisition
The best teachers use different language learning strategies depending on a child’s skills, development and experience. By tailoring these strategies to each child, young learners can master language acquisition more successfully and improve their grammar, vocabulary, reading comprehension and listening skills.
Teachers can change your child’s life for the better. Over time, your child will learn new concepts, unlock their full potential and become a more confident person. We’re proud of all of our Maestras here at KSS Preschools because of the support, commitment and loyalty they give to every child who walks through our doors.
