Event Details

Background: 

The Zubin Foundation conducted a 6 month research project to examine resources, interventions and strategies to support children from non-Chinese speaking family backgrounds in kindergarten. We wanted to find out what teaching support tools are currently available and what kindergarten school principals feel is most needed to help these students.

The research examines:

  • current support measures for children from non-Chinese speaking families
  • challenges faced by kindergarten teachers
  • Chinese language attainment levels of CAL students
  • what more can be done?
