I'm aware that there are many types of bilingual or immersion programs and was curious as to why you chose to take or avoid this route for your child and if you've been in a program I'd love your thoughts. Our public school district has a dual immersion program starting in K which is 50% native english speakers and 50% native spanish speakers. The spanish is a mexican dialect, as most of our hispanic population is from Mexico. The children are taught alternating one week in spanish and one week in english. It seems to be a very popular and there is a lottery to get into the program. DH and I are on the fence about enrolling DD. She has been in public preschool this year and will be starting K in the fall. She will be with the same class through 5th grade and upon entering middle school will transition into the IB middle-years program.
