Understanding the ELOF: Stories from Experts

Listen as early childhood experts explain how the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework (ELOF) can support a continuum of learning for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers. The ELOF is grounded in comprehensive research around what young children should know and be able to do during their early years. This podcast series provides practical and useful information from experts on how to apply the ELOF to specific populations and support teaching domains. Some speakers in this series use the wording "native language" to mean home language. This series is hosted by the National Center on Early Childhood Development, Teaching, and Learning.
