Advice for parents and teachers of bilingual children aged 0 – 6
Bilingual children have unique language and learning skills
As the parent or preschool teacher of bilingual children, your desire to help the kids in your care make the best possible start is natural…but how can you achieve this?
15% of Australian children live in homes where languages other than English are spoken.
It’s important for families and educators to know how to support their bilingual children.
And it’s vital that you know how to separate ‘fact’ from ‘fiction’ when it comes to children who speak more than one language!
Join us for Kids First Children’s Services’ next free Community Service Seminar – a two hour evening event that will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to help your bilingual child enjoy social and learning success.
April Yumang holds a Masters’ Degree in Speech Pathology and has a special professional interest in supporting bilingual children. April has worked extensively with bilingual children aged 0-6 and at this exceptionally valuable event, will provide parents and early educators with practical ideas, information and resources for supporting the language and learning of the bilingual children in their care.
