As noted throughout the BUILD’s Home-Based Child Care (HBCC) Webinar Series, HBCC is popular because many providers offer flexible schedules and are more affordable and familiar to families than child care centers. In addition, many families are able to find home-based providers with cultural and/or linguistic backgrounds similar to their own. In addition, nearly one-fifth of the ECE workforce are immigrants, with many educators speaking languages other than English and close to a quarter of all HBCC providers speaking Spanish. How can states and communities recognize and support this critical population of educators? Please join us for this session where we will hear promising approaches to supporting HBCC educators whose primary language is other than English.
