First 5 California Dual Language Learner Pilot study: Summary of study findings


In 2015, First 5 California committed $20 million for a “DLL Pilot” to identify and promote effective, scalable strategies that early learning and care programs can use to support DLLs and their families. A key component of this initiative was a study focused on three high-leverage areas: instructional practices, professional development for early educators, and family engagement. The study examined the practices used across different early learning settings, diverse language groups, and DLLs of varying ages and backgrounds, and the extent to which various practices are associated with child and family outcomes.
