Why Summer Might Be the Best Time for Your Preschooler to Learn a Second Language

KSS Preschool Spanish Summer Learning

School’s not out for summer! KSS Preschools, which serves the San Francisco Bay Area, offers Spanish sessions through July and August, helping little language learners immerse themselves in a second language in classrooms and outdoor environments. Here are some reasons why the summer months are the best time for preschoolers to learn a new language. 

Warm Weather

While the City of San Francisco might be cool and foggy during the summer months, July and August in the East Bay bring clear blue skies and warm temperatures, allowing preschoolers to learn Spanish language skills in the great Californian outdoors. 

KSS Preschools, which offers a summer Spanish program through July and August, lets preschoolers play in their outdoor sandbox, explore nature, and make new friends. These activities can increase socialization skills and help young students become more confident in outdoor surroundings. KSS balances outside play and learning with classroom-based activities that further encourage socialization and education.

More Time to Learn a Second Language

Many preschools in San Francisco close their doors during the summer months, leaving young children without a way to socialize or engage in new learning experiences. Enrolling your child in a Spanish language immersion preschool during the summer months, therefore, provides them with an opportunity to learn life-long skills. Children will have more time to focus on Spanish language learning and work on their vocabulary and grammar.

Reduce Summer Learning Loss

“Summer learning loss” refers to the loss of academic skills when students don’t engage in learning experiences during the summer. At KSS Preschools, children not only learn Spanish in an immersive and interactive environment but can master other subjects like math, science, and language arts through July and August. As many other preschool students stay at home during the summer, your child can take part in learning experiences that might make them more successful when they return to their regular preschools in the fall.

Plan a Trip to a Spanish-Speaking Destination

If you plan to travel to a Spanish-speaking country later this year, why not enroll your child in a Spanish language immersion preschool program and prepare your little one for the trip?

Preschoolers can immerse themselves in Spanish culture and traditions at KSS Preschools before and after your family vacation and further enhance their vocabulary and grammar skills during their travels. 

Final Word

Summer might be the best time for preschoolers to learn a second language like Spanish. That’s because young children can socialize in outdoor environments, reduce summer learning loss, learn a new language without the constraints of their regular preschool, and use their new skills in a Spanish-speaking destination.

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.
