Do you know where your child’s educators in the room are from? Where they have lived before?
At Buttercups Childcare & Kindergarten we are proud of providing a home away from home for children and educators originating from many different countries! Diverse cultures in early learning offer a tremendous opportunity to learn how to value and respect people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. We appreciate and encourage input from families and staff to share their cultural background with our community – may it be singing a song or reading a story in a child’s home language or sharing cultural celebrations that happen throughout the year.
Have a look at the following interesting facts about cultural diversity :-)
