Dual Language Learners Toolkit

This toolkit provides resources that can be used to support young children who are learning their home languages and English. It is divided into three sections: administrators and managers; teachers, caregivers, and family services staff; and families. Select from the links below to start exploring the available materials.

The Policy Statement on Supporting the Development of Children Who Are Dual Language Learners in Early Childhood Programs provides recommendations to early childhood programs that promote the development and learning of young children who are dual language learners (DLLs). It also provides support to tribal communities in their language revitalization efforts within tribal early childhood programs. The statement is also available in Spanish (español).
