Bilingual early childhood education

Bilingual early childhood education and preschool education is also available. Forms of bilingual early childhood and preschool education include language immersion, extensive bilingual early childhood education and language-enriched early childhood education. These differ from each other by the amount of foreign language used in the instruction.
 
In language immersion, early childhood education and preschool education are both implemented in Swedish throughout. In extensive bilingual early childhood education and preschool education the share of foreign language content is more than 25 % of the operations. The same share is up to 25 % in language-enriched early childhood education.
 
The goal of bilingual early childhood education is to develop the child’s language competence in both Finnish and the new foreign language. In early childhood education, learning languages becomes a natural part of other activities thanks to play, song and games.
