News about our bilingual program:
Children under the age of three are in a sensitive period for developing language. Research shows that this is also the best time for children to learn a language other than the one spoken at home. At Magnolia, we practiced dual immersion with English and Spanish for the first two years. I know many parents highly valued this program. We are sad to say that our Spanish speaking guide is no longer available in the same capacity they once were. Because of the immediate demands of caring for young children with qualified care givers, we were able to hire an incredible assistant right away, but not a Spanish speaking guide.
We are hopeful that providing a dual immersion program will be in our future again, as we know the value of this opportunity is immense for children and the future of our community. If you want to speak more about this challenge, please let me know. If you have any ideas about how to make this dream a reality again, please let us know! In the mean time, be assured that Magnolia is providing a high-quality environment to support your child's language development and to reach their fullest potential.
