This module gave me added resources to add to my daycare through multicultural exploration through dolls, food, clothes, books, and dramatic play. I can invite families to visit and share traditions. I must maintain the children’s home language, while understanding the relationship between culture, race, and language.
There is no right way. I must work with the families. The information and disposition children have are environmental exposure because children observe and make sense of their surroundings. Understanding our differences and supporting home language is very important. I have to ensure children are comfortable using their home language in my program by using key words and phrases. I will have dialog with parents about language goals they have for their children.
