New Start:
Supporting multilingual children and
immigrant & refugee families

More 1 in 4 children under age 6 live in households that speak a language other than English. In order to prepare children from birth to school readiness in immigrant and refugee families, a focus on early learning for these children and meaningful engagement of their parents and communities is essential. This new training series will equip providers, stakeholders and other professionals with knowledge on immigration policy as it impacts children and families, cultural competency, and child development and educational principles in the context of multilingual homes and multicultural environments.

 

Content and discussion includes:

  • Immigrant & Refugee Demographics
  • ABC’s of Immigration & Refugee Law and Policy
  • Immigration Status & Access to Benefits
  • Accessing Education (Birth – College)
  • Early Education Standards and Measures (QRIS & ASQ)
  • Cultural Competency & Family Engagement
  • Being a Resource for Families
