Native Speaker-led interactions
Between 40-60% of the World’s population are considered to be bilingual. This is represented by the team a Yüme, an experienced group of internationally trained educators and professionals who ensure each child receives the support and learning experience that their family requires.
How do languages work at Yüme?
Our nursery offers a the option to introduce Spanish as a second language with native speaking educators. Plus, complimentary languages such as French, are also introduced for children over 2 years old.
Through songs, stories, circle time activities and everyday interactions, children are exposed to language in a natural way, understanding that both children and adults may speak in many languages without this being an obstacle in their communicational skills.
Is learning two or more languages at the same time confusing for children?
Yes and no. It is true that children may find learning two or more languages at the same time more challenging. However, it’s been proven through extensive research that in the long term, children’s language abilities are not delayed or impaired, while, in fact, multilingualism provides a stronger cognitive development, and a personal (and eventually) professional advantage.
If you are bilingual and you are thinking about or are currently raising your children to be bilingual, our nursery is for you. If you're not bilingual, but wonder if you might be able to raise your children to be bilingual, our nursery is also for you.
