The Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care (EEC), in partnership with WIDA Early Years, is sponsoring a series of institutes for Early Education and Care Partners who support young dual language learners (DLLs), age 2.5-5.5 years. You are invited to attend the institutes funded by the Massachusetts Race to the Top-Early Learning Challenge grant.

Come enjoy hands-on learning with WIDA Early Years facilitators. Learn about the WIDA Early English Language Development (E-ELD) Standards Framework, and how you can connect it to everyday learning experiences in your early care and education setting, to better support the language development of DLLs.

The institute is intended for individuals who are supporting programs implementing the WIDA E-ELD Standards Framework such as EPS grantees, coaches, mentors, Master Cadre trainers, public school partners (PreK-3), and higher education faculty. It is recommended that more than one person from your organization attend so you may work as a team. Registration is free, but limited to only 75 participants for each institute.
