Parent resources - multilingual

  • 1.  Parent resources - multilingual

    Posted 12 days ago
    Hello,

    I am working with one of my preschool teachers to locate some parent resources/handouts related to behavior and child development. The primary language in the home is Farsi, and although the Mom is able to communicate with the classroom team regarding basic day to day needs we are looking for resources to share in their home language so that we can provide more individualized support. I am hoping that some of the wonderful ECE folks in this forum might be familiar with a few credible sources for multilingual handouts and materials!

    Thank you,

    I cannot offer help with the translation, but I truly LOVE this post. I am grateful for this forum of support and encouragement as well as practical help when it's so desperately needed.
    I wish every early childhood educator could feel the uplift of peer support.
    Thank you!
