Project LCExcel logo


LCExcel, a project of The Center: Resources for Teaching and Learning, is a project that provides coaching and other supports for gold standard early childhood programs that serve linguistically and culturally diverse populations, including Dual Language Learners (DLLs). During a two-year grant project, early childhood programs across Illinois utilized some of the resources and materials on this page to help them prepare for The Awards of Excellence (AoE) - in Linguistically and Culturally Appropriate Practice (L-CAP). These materials are available to any program that would like to use them as part of their professional development and quality improvement process in the area of Linguistically and culturally appropriate practices. 

For more in-depth coaching or support in this area, please contact The Center.
