Supporting language awareness in your child

INTERCULTURAL EXPERIENCES AND HOW THEY CAN LEAD TO PARENT-EDUCATOR PARTNERSHIP CHALLENGES

The child’s environment does not determine their language acquisition but it is an important factor in contributing to the child’s language development. The kindergarten you have chosen and you as a family can guide your child in their language acquisition by creating a supportive environment. You as a family can give your child security by using your first language at home and keeping to this consistently. 

Understanding how children learn languages is important for both you and the educator and will help to bring security also in the kindergarten.
