Georgia preschool providers to launch program for English learners
from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
The Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning is launching a new initiative designed to help preschool providers better identify and support children that are learning English. The initiative announced this week will assist practitioners in identifying dual language learners, children that are learning English and one or more languages, and supporting their language development — a key factor for school readiness. By providing training and technical assistance, DECAL aims to have early care and education practitioners as well as school district personnel equipped with tools and strategies to support English and home language development.
