Ensure children of all backgrounds can thrive with an intercultural approach to early childhood education

In a multicultural society such as Canada’s, early childhood educators work with children and families from a diverse mix of ethnicities, religions, languages, abilities, and lifestyles. Diversity enriches the experience of children and educators alike in these environments, but it can also present challenges in supporting each child’s growth and learning.

In Introduction to Early Childhood Education and Care, early learning specialists Carole Massing and Mary Lynne Matheson present an intercultural perspective as a foundation of equitable outcomes in early childhood education, but just what does that look like? An intercultural approach involves the respectful exchange of ideas between people from diverse backgrounds, leading to mutual trust and deeper relationships. Guided by a diverse team of reviewers, this book examines the concepts, approaches, and strategies that every early childhood educator needs to know to provide sensitive, culturally responsive care for children and their families.

Topics include:

  • The theoretical bases for an intercultural approach to early childhood education and care
  • The factors that impact a child’s physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development
  • How to create environments that enhance children’s wellbeing and affirm their identity
  • How to support children’s creativity, literacy, and inquiry skills through an intercultural lens
  • The skills, responsibilities, and challenges of working as an early childhood educator
