We have a child in our toddler program who speaks English, and Spanish fluently
at home. This has encouraged the other children in the toddler room to have the opportunity to be
exposed to a few Spanish words. During this moment, Quinn is bringing Addie her
“agua” (water) during our time in the gym. Even though the other
children might not be aware that “agua” means water in another
language, they are still able to make that connection with Addie and Addie’s water cup.
Our environment also includes labels, books and other materials in different
languages to promote and encourage diversity among the children!
