Lifetime Montessori School Now Offers a Bilingual Elementary Program
Enhancing Language Fluency and Problem-Solving Skills through English and Spanish
By: Lifetime Montessori school
Under the guidance of Kristin Edwards, M.Ed., Director at LMS, the Elementary classroom features two teachers who facilitate learning in both English and Spanish. The Spanish Elementary teacher will instruct students in Spanish, providing language lessons for those who are new to the language and conducting all subject matter in Spanish for those already proficient. Meanwhile, the English teacher will continue teaching in English as usual. As children progress through the bilingual classrooms, the goal is for a growing number of students to become proficient in both English and Spanish.
"We are excited to introduce our English and Spanish Bilingual Immersion program, which builds upon our successful Immersion primary program for children starting at the age of three," stated Kristin Edwards. "Our vision is to create a natural learning environment where each child can acquire both languages effortlessly. Language development is an integral part of personality development and we believe that this program will provide our students with invaluable linguistic and cognitive skills."
"Inasmuch as it is a wonderful cultural, travel and communications tool, it has shown other benefits, too. Since Spanish varies a great deal from English, it sparks children's minds in terms of sentence analysis and rhythm. Their brains process more from both languages and it's helpful in problem-solving,"
It is important to acknowledge that language acquisition can be influenced by individual learning styles, exposure levels, and educational environments. At Lifetime Montessori School, each child is encouraged to learn at their own pace in their bilingual elementary program. The school provides a patient, supportive, and nurturing environment to foster their language development.
