EAL (English as an Additional Language) Checklist

EAL (English as an Additional Language) Checklist

About This Primary Resource

A checklist created for nurseries and early years centres with children and families learning EAL (English as an Additional Language). This resource aims to highlight common issues that these children and families face when attending Early Years settings and identify strategies that can be used to support them. The suggestions are split into the action that staff can take on a daily basis, how the setting as a whole can address the issues and how the wider community can help the child/children to settle in.

This resource was created by Julie Cigman - an experienced Early Years teacher, writer and consultant. She offers conference workshops, bespoke training and consultancy to Early Years practitioners in schools, day nurseries, pre-schools and children’s centres. You can find out more on her website.
