Fostering language development in the everyday practices of kindergarten, nursery and playgroups: A Video study
High expectations are set on initiatives fostering language development in early childhood education and care. Evaluation studies of their effects emphasise the relevance of fostering language development through everyday interactions over specific programs. As a result, professional competence related to language education adaptative to individual differences within early childhood is most important. This research project provides professional training focussing on five strategies for early childhood educators working in kindergarten, nursery and play groups in Germany and Switzerland. Based on video data, this contribution examines the implementation of the strategies in everyday practices.
