We’re with you. Your young child’s brain should get on with one of the things it does best at this age – acquire languages!

To help you out, we compiled this listing of center based daycares (D) and home and family daycares (HD) with immersion or bilingual programs. Playgroups, cooperatives and anything less than five days a week with a bilingual component we plan to list in a separate listing. If you are in a rush to get your hands on that listing, or would like a listing that extends beyond DC, please consider supporting our work by becoming a supporting member.

Unfortunately, most of these bilingual daycares already have long waitlists, and only two of them are outside of NW. So, if you know of anyone who is looking to start a bilingual daycare or to integrate more languages into an existing daycare program anywhere in the District, please encourage them to do so! We’d be happy to assist them.

Please let us know of any great program we might have missed, especially hyperlocal home and family daycares with little web presence!
