Language Diversity in ECE

Observing children’s language development is an awesome aspect of teachers’ work in ECE. This development is even more incredible if the child adds another language to its home language. What can teachers do to support young children and their families on their bilingual or multilingual journey?

This 2-hour, interactive Zoom workshop discusses the makeup of language diversity in Aotearoa New Zealand, requirements and responsibilities as per regulations and shows the connections between language, culture and the Principles and Strands of Te Whāriki. It will suggest research-based and practical strategies for teachers to support language diversity in ECE.

Facilitator: Katina Beauchamp
