Multilingual and Private Nurseries in Barcelona

Many private nurseries in Barcelona now use English along with Catalan and Spanish actively throughout the day. Often a particular educator will only communicate in one of these languages in order to differentiate with the children. English language nurseries function in English as the main language. It is very usual for some Catalan and Spanish to be spoken too.  Please also see Ludotecas as many offer day care nursery facilities as well as a centre for children to play.
