I agree! At 5 yrs old, she will definitely pick up the language! Expose her to as much Greek as possible and, if you are going to put her into a Greek junior then insist that her teachers speek only in Greek to her. Yes, she may struggle initially and complain that she doesn't understand anything but, she will get there and when she starts junior school will be at the same level as the local children. Looking at the future, you may also want her to have extra English lessons at some point.

At 5 she will pick up Greek in not time. It would be a great pity for her if you moved her to a totally English school environment.
