Policy Areas Children & Families, Education
The population of children served in early care and education (ECE) settings is culturally, racially, and linguistically diverse and becoming more so. As a result, early childhood professionals must be prepared to work with young children from a variety of backgrounds and family settings, who may speak a number of languages other than English. This report provides recommendations to prepare early educators to work with young dual language learners (DLLs).
