How can you nourish children’s early literacy and language development?

Use ELLCO Pre-K to improve literacy practices and supports in preschool classrooms

The Early Language and Literacy Classroom Observation (ELLCO) tool helps build better literacy programs by assessing the quality of the classroom environment and teachers’ practices. With ELLCO, educators gather the essential data needed for professional development and program improvement that lead to better literacy outcomes for young children.

ELLCO Pre-K is designed specifically for early childhood settings, focusing on important preliteracy activities like storybook reading, circle time conversations, and child-originated storywriting

Use ELLCO K–3 to assess literacy practices and supports in early elementary settings and CHELLO to rate the early literacy environment in home-based child care settings.
