Teaching in tongues: The bilingual pre-school tapping new potential
from The Independent
The children in this nursery in the leafy London suburb of Richmond are busy acting out a story about a bear in a forest. Stage directions, however, are being given to them by their teacher in Russian. This daycare center for under-fives is unique in the U.K., being the first Russian-speaking bilingual nursery in the country to be officially registered by education standards watchdog Ofsted. The center, run by the Azbuka Foundation, attracts parents from miles away as a result of the dearth of alternatives — there is a two-year waiting list to register a child.
