Abstract

This chapter addresses a growing phenomenon in early childhood education (ECE) that has received insufficient pedagogical attention: how to close the gap between school entrants’ heterogeneous linguistic and cultural backgrounds and the language proficiency expectations of ECE literacy preparation curricula. This is an increasingly common problem, given the proliferating movement of people around the globe, and one of acute relevance to schools in Toronto, Canada, where this research took place.
