Why

Many parents wonder why their child’s preschool is not sufficiently challenging.
Their doubts begin to rush the growth process, such as demanding that their children read earlier, count higher… as though such stressors would have greater gains later on in life. The real question is what are preschoolers designed to learn at this age?  Did you know your preschooler is a language genius who will lose that capacity by the age of 7? Check out the research:

  • Window until 7 years- The language center of the brain has a window until 7 years of age to learn languages at the native level, and the younger the better… (Strozer, 1994)
  • Cross cultural friendships- Learning languages and cultures in the most formative years increases cross cultural friendships and reduces prejudices (Bamford & Mizokawa, 1991)
  • Increased concentration- Bilingual students demonstrate more concentration and engagement (Thomas & Collier, 2005).
  • Critical thinking- Bilingualism improves the executive center of the brain, which impacts critical thinking, metacognitive, and metalinguistic skills (Thomas & Collier, 2005)
  • Learn additional languages- Bilingual speakers are more likely to learn additional languages (Cenoz & Valencia, 2004) 
  • Score higher- Bilingual students score higher on the SAT in Math and English (The College Board SAT, 2003)
  • Improves English- Learning another language improves English structure and vocabulary (Curtain & Dalhberg, 2004)
  • College Entrance– College admissions and scholarship committees are now looking past just grades for students that stand out, and multilingualism helps separate students from the general applicant (Callahan & Gándara, 2014)
  • Research– Read more about what the research is saying.
  • Love- Add all of that in a Christ-centered, loving environment, and your child is on the trajectory to becoming a World Changer. And that is our motto-
    Inspiring World Changers.
