The ELL Tool Kit has been developed to provide research-based information, guidelines, and principles for early learning professionals to promote culturally competent practice. While it provides a broad range of information about young ELLs and their families, its primary purposes are: • To define cultural competence and proficiency; • To describe second language acquisition; • To unpack myths and realities about ELLs; • To highlight research and best practices for educating and supporting young ELLs and their families; and • To outline strategies to build and sustain culturally competent and proficient early learning professionals and organizations.
