Bilingualism is a term that is used to describe the ability of a person to speak more than one language. This can be achieved through growing up in a household where more than one language is spoken; or by learning multiple languages at school or through other forms of education.
Bilingualism has been shown to have positive effects on intelligence and development, as well as social skills. Research conducted by Dr. Iryna Babik and Quentin Cruz-Boyer shows that bilingual children are better at solving problems, are more creative, and have greater cognitive flexibility than monolingual children. They also tend to be better at dealing with stress, which helps them develop into more confident adults.
It’s shown that bilingualism also has positive effects on academic achievement. Bilingual students tend to outperform monolingual students in terms of academic performance. In addition, they have an advantage when it comes to learning new languages later in life – they’re not intimidated by them because they’re already familiar with how they work.
At Petits Poussins Brooklyn, we believe that bilingualism is an important part of childhood education. Our bilingual teachers are excited to teach your children French while they’re still young enough to pick up new words quickly.
Our Daycare Brooklyn, New York, offers a full-service preschool experience that includes daily activities like reading stories and playing with toys.
Our teachers at our Childcare center will also provide instruction in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies—and they’ll be there every step of the way to help your child learn and develop their skills.
