    Distance Learning Webinars Offered in English and Spanish

    Today, Early Edge California will host the second webinar in its new Distance Learning series. “How to Read Books to Infants & Toddlers” will be offered in English and Spanish and will provide oral language development strategies for Early Learning educators and caregivers supporting infants and toddlers.

    The mandate to close schools in California and engage in distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the way that Early Learning teachers are able to engage with their students. To support the current needs of our teachers and the young children they work with, Early Edge California has designed a series of webinars offered in English and Spanish to provide new tools for teaching from home.

    1. My sister wants her kids to go to a dual-language program. It is good to know that you can do that even with the pandemic going on. It is nice that you can do some webinars to help kids learn new languages. Personally, it does seem like she should find a program where they get to practice.
