Making connections

First Steps is an international nursery school where children enjoy acquiring English. From day one we teach through English to give them a sound base in the primary language of instruction, but we encourage the children to use their knowledge of other languages to help them discover connections and find patterns and differences. Over time they acquire the many cognitive skills and attitudes of plurilingual learners. 

From a very early age children love to play with sounds and words. They are all potentially multilingual. They use language in its broadest sense to communicate, without boundaries. They explore and invent, using what they know to interpret what is new.
