Early exposure to a new language helps preschoolers get a full immersion when getting more formal classes in Kindergarten. In addition, it can be reinforced at home with educational TV programs, audio recordings and books.
The first day of a new preschool, can be a mix of excitement and anxiety for both children and their parents. While some children just turn around and run excited to meet their classmates and teachers, others just can’t bear being separated from mom or dad. Some tears and anxiety can be normal the first day, but this behaviour can be extended for weeks or months if timely actions are not taken.
We are pleased to announce the return of Ms Giulliana to the West Hillhurst Community Preschool. Our M/W/F afternoon classes for 2018-19 will be bilingual, taught in English and Spanish by Ms Giulliana. As well, there will be a Spanish language session in our Tu/Th afternoon classes.
