The CAYL Institute presents an engaging discussion with Luis Hernandez, Silvia Juarez-Marazzo, and Yvette Rodriguez on how to support young Latino children in early care and education. Diversity is the signature of Generation Alpha – children born after 2010 – and Latino children will be a large part of that growing population.
