The Benefits of Spanish Immersion vs. Daycare
By starting your child’s education in a Spanish Immersion program, you are not only giving them the gift of a second language – you are instilling a lifetime of appreciation for learning. 

While daycare may seem like a viable option – Spanish immersion offers major advantages:

  • Studies have shown Immersion students perform better on standardized tests
  • Students have better problem-solving skills because of their ability to switch from language to language while processing tasks
  • Brain scans show that bilingual students have denser grey matter thus contributing to longer attention spans, improved classification skills, better creativity, and improved IQ
  • Immersion promotes Diversity and Cultural Awareness by encouraging students to be more accepting and understanding of different cultures

“The sad truth is that, as a country, (the U.S.) never had to learn other languages, but it’s a fundamentally different world,” said Marty Abbott, executive director of The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL). “Although knowing more than one language is the norm in other countries, it’s not here, and we have to make sure that all kids have the opportunity to compete in the job market”
