Under the influence of the trend of internationalization, with the increasing importance of English learning and the trend of younger English education in China, English education in private kindergartens has become one of the most discussed topics in early childhood education. It is of great significance to study the current situation of English education in bilingual kindergartens, analyze the existing problems and causes, and review and reflect on English education in bilingual kindergartens. This research adopts the questionnaire survey method to analyze and discuss the current situation of English education in bilingual kindergartens in Guangzhou, mainly from the aspects of teaching staff, classroom management, English environment creation, and parents' attitudes towards children's English education. In-depth analysis of English education in bilingual kindergartens has some problems. First, the understanding of the current kindergarten English education is biased; secondly, the level of English teachers is uneven; thirdly, the understanding of English environment creation is not thorough; fourth, the effect of classroom teaching is low; fifth. Teacher evaluation is unscientific; sixth. Lack of cooperation from family. The main reasons for the problems are analyzed from three aspects: kindergarten administrators, kindergarten English teachers and children's parents. The author hopes to help bilingual kindergartens improve the quality of English teaching through multi-dimensional research, so that more children can benefit.
