What's the question?

How can we support a child from Poland who has just joined our setting?

Children who are learning more than one language are not necessarily going to be slower at learning to talk. However, some children have a period when they don't talk in a new place (such as nursery) especially if languages they don't know are spoken there. 

You can help these children by:

  • Give the child time to settle
  • Talk to the parents
  • Find out some daily words in the child's first language
  • Use objects or pictures or symbols
