Uniting Early Learning provides engaging and tailored education programs that reflect the diversity in our communities.
We recently partnered with the Department of Education and FKA Children’s Services to produce a video for a series documenting "diversity in linguistic input fostering rich language outcomes.”
Each Monday, Pascoe Vale South Uniting Kindergarten runs a program where children learn Mandarin across a range of expressions, including auditory, visual and tactile. As the program manager Echo says, “exposing children to a diverse source of multiple speakers creates an optimal language learning environment.
“It’s really important for children to be able to speak a second language. It’s a lifelong skill.”
Teacher Tania adds: “The benefit of the program is the development of children’s confidence, their self-help skills and their ability to respond to their peers in a second language.”
