Simply Multicultural

If you’re looking for a good overview article about the importance of introducing children to different cultures from a young age, check out this article over at Simply Multicultural.

The author, Lyn Uhlmann, neatly summarises the Australian context and why childcare professionals need to consider diversity when designing programs.

A multicultural early childhood learning environment helps young children learn to respect and understand other cultures as well as their own. It also allows children to experience people of different cultures working and playing together with a common purpose; to develop an understanding that beneath their skin, all humans look the same.

The research for this resource was made possible through a grant from the Central Coast Council.
