Cultural Context for Parenting and Early Childhood*

Mar 7, 2016

Participants in this session will gain an understanding of how their own cultural lens plays a role in their ability to serve the diversity of families they work with.

The field of early childhood education has become increasingly diverse, making the ability to understand other perspectives to collaborate effectively with families and children essential to providing quality services. Each and every child learns and develops within the context of relationships and through meaningful interactions within their environments. Understanding the influence of culture on children’s development and parenting is key to providing quality services. Participants in this session will gain an understanding of how their own cultural lens plays a role in their ability to serve the diversity of families they work with. This session will share a clear definition of culture, its role in development, and strategies for supporting all families.
