I would start now speaking only English at home to her if you can.  She will be bilingual by the time she is 5 and that is awesome.

She should learn the language she will need most frequently in her country, and if she's in the US, yes, she should also be learning English.

Where does she live? I'd try to teach her English as well. It's easier to teach them when they are younger.

Has she been taught any English or just Spanish?  How often do you see her?

Quoting booaura: She should learn the language she will need most frequently in her country, and if she's in the US, yes, she should also be learning English.

Have you tried talking to her parents about speaking English more? What do they say?

I would contact your local elementary public preschool and see if your daughter could receive ESL services there for children that speek Spanish and learning to speak English.  My son went to preschool with ESE services because of his Autism diagnosis.
