Each event will feature the participation of educator Dr. Mariana Diaz-Wionczek, experienced educational consultant for children’s programs: ‘Dora la Exploradora’ and ‘Sesame Street’, who will offer practical advice for parents, emphasizing the benefits of exposing children at an early age to bilingual education.
“Bilingualism is a beautiful thing! Being able to speak two languages builds many bridges and expands our worldview, and it all starts at home, when parents speak with their children in the native language,” said Mariana Wionczek, PhD in Early Childhood Education. “It is important to expose children to the Spanish language at an early age as much as possible in a way that is natural to them.”
