Course Summary

Culture influences every aspect of a child’s development and learning. As classrooms and society become more culturally diverse, there is a need for early educators to embrace cultural understanding–to be culturally aware, culturally sensitive, culturally responsive, and culturally competent.

This course explores how we can reflect on and cultivate practices to build cultural understanding and culturally competent approaches to working with children and families.
