Multilingual Services


Multilingual Services (MLS) is Early Learning's comprehensive support system for language access to children and families. The MLS program is inclusive of the following:

  • Interpreters whose primary function is to interpret information for parents when needed.
  • Bilingual Instructional Assistants who support children directly in the classroom, bridging the language gap and helping the child access instruction meaningfully.
  • Dual Language Learner Coaches support teachers in modifying curriculum to meet the needs of DLLs by providing strategies and resources. They coach teachers and support their understanding of language development and second language acquisition.
