Advancing Young Children’s Language and Literacy Development

up to 12 PD hours English Family Child Care Administrators and Educators, Preschool and Pre-K Educators

This series is designed to increase teachers’ capacity to promote children’s language and literacy development during the preschool years. Sessions will emphasize evidence-based strategies that maximize children’s reading comprehension, vocabulary knowledge, language development, and phonological awareness.

Participants who complete the series will:

  • learn effective dialogic reading strategies that support children’s comprehension and vocabulary development
  • learn ways to stimulate quality conversations that promote children’s use of advanced language
  • understand the developmental progression of phonological awareness and learn appropriate approaches to help children acquire these critical decoding skills

Participants can earn up to 12 PD hours by attending the three face-to-face sessions and completing three online assignments.
