Exploring Culture and Identity
At Dragonfly's Early Learning at Coolum Beach, we want to ensure that the children and their families who attend our Centre feel welcome, enriched, and settled. Because of the rich diversity of our community, we believe that it is important to support the children to enable them to grow and flourish in our multicultural society. Discovering where the children and their families come from is all an important part of this.
Cultural considerations are relevant to all children whether or not their cultural identity is the same as the dominant culture. Cultural identity is the feeling of belonging to a group and builds a sense of identity and knowledge.
Early Childhood Education provides an ideal setting for children to learn about different cultures. Educators play a significant role in helping children to form a positive view of themselves as well as contributing to their sense of belonging.
Here we see these children discovering their heritage and backgrounds, both their own and that of their peers.
