Dual Language Learner Pilot

First 5 California (F5CA) is in the process of developing a Dual Language Learner (DLL) Pilot. Through investment in a DLL Pilot, First 5 California (F5CA) has the opportunity to identify effective strategies that support dual language development across early learning settings, engage families to support their children’s dual language development and deliver effective professional learning opportunities so educators, caregivers, and program administrators can effectively support the learning and development of young DLLs. F5CA will share and promote the findings of the pilot broadly, across California and the nation, promoting far-reaching scalable and implementable support for addressing this critical area of need.
