CE Course Description
It is wildly accepted that early care and education programs should support parent engagement linked to early learning for all families, including families from diverse language and cultural backgrounds. This brief continuing education course, developed using information from Child Care and Early Education Research Connections, highlights research that can inform policies to expand the capacity of early care and education programs to promote parent engagement in linguistically diverse families with young children. Characteristics of linguistically diverse children and their families are discussed as well as policy initiatives that could strengthen the capacity of early care and education programs to support parent engagement.
