Although language diversity poses short-term challenges, early multilingualism and multiliteracy come with great benefits, at least, when it is correctly supported. Currently, many language minority (LM) families are distressed about language issues and many early childhood (EC) professionals (such as parenting advisors and childcare staff) feel insecure in their approach toward LM families. This project aims to transform this societal problem by promoting early multilingualism and multiliteracy in childhood and childcare in Flanders.
