Hebrew Language Immersion
Research has shown that the key to success in the acquisition of a second language is to begin as early as possible. It is suggested that children be taught the second language in their formative years, with many opportunities for listening, saying words and then short phrases. Music, movement, games and art should be integral parts of the language experience. In the Early Childhood Program, classes will have one teacher who speaks only Hebrew to the children and one teacher who interacts with them only in English (both are bilingual). We feel our children will acquire Hebrew comfortably and naturally. This will provide them with a strong basis in the Hebrew language for all future learning.
