Inside a Kindergarten Dual Immersion Classroom: Our Spanish Bilingual Education Journey

I started researching our bilingual education options when my first child was still a toddler. I knew in my heart that if my kids had any hope of mastering even a beginners level of fluency in my family’s native language, it would have to come from a school setting. My research concluded that dual immersion education was not an option where we lived – not in public education or the
