Implications for Serving Dual Language Learners and Their Families: Filipino/Tagalog Speaking Family Care Provider

This report focuses on Filipino/Tagalog-speaking Family Child Care Providers (FCCHs) who are not typically considered in Dual Language Learning discussions and analyses. This report examines nine licensed Tagalog/Filipino speaking FCCHs from the Stockton area. Filipino providers view caring for children as a vocation that gives them joy and fulfillment. The majority emphasized the caring aspect of their work and the importance of developing ‘respect’ for others. The focus on caring for children may be associated with their perceptions of parental expectations for the health and safety of their children.
