Daycare provider and children

It’s alright to be different: talking to children about diversity in our world

As early childhood educators, we are expected, and for some topics mandated, to participate in trainings about diversity, culture, and inclusion. While these trainings are extremely important and help providers to understand and be inclusive of the religious, racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic status of the children and families we serve, they often are missing one piece: teaching these concepts to children.
