On this episode of Bilingual Avenue, I check in with a mother who is concerned that her son may fall behind in Kindergarten if he attends a Spanish only preschool. I describe the different concepts that her child will likely be exposed to in preschool and assure her that many of them will be skills that he can transfer regardless of what language is being used for the instruction. For the skills that are language specific, I give her ideas on how she can incorporate them at home. I also share some ideas on how she can partner up with her child’s teacher to make sure she is able to help her son with the transition.
