Why do we teach our preschool children in English and Spanish?  Several reasons: 

1) Children who continue to develop their first language learn a second language better. 

2) Becoming fluent in a second language is an asset in today's economy. 

3) Learning a second language develops other valuable skills as well - including complex reasoning and persistence. 

 

4) We show our Latinx students' families that we respect their culture. 

 

IT'S ALL GOOD!
