Supporting English Language Learners in ELCC Settings

According to Ballantyne, Sanderman, & McLaughlin (2008), "Programs that provide research-based, age-appropriate instruction in early language and literacy skills can ensure that English language learners (ELLs) enter school equipped with the tools they need to be successful learners in kindergarten and beyond." Come learn how to develop effective programming that enhances English language learning for young children who are ELLs. This session will explore:

  • How young children learn a 2nd or 3rd language
  • The importance of developing and maintain the home language
  • Tips for communicating with and engaging families and communities
  • Strategies for creating supportive learning environments and developing language-rich activities
