Transforming Early Learning
A culturally sustainable environment embraces and values the multi-ethnic and multilingual capacities of young children and families. It is how tradition, history, and culture come together to improve the quality of life- culturally, economically, socially, and environmentally. Not just for today, but for future generations to come. A culturally sustainable environment supports children’s development, renews and maintains their humanity to create enduring relationships with nature and with other people in the community and from around the world. In this webinar, you will learn components of the guiding framework that uses loose parts to design environments that foster culturally sustainability.
- Define how loose parts support children’s culture, identity, traditions and history.
- Appraise the importance of creating culturally sustainable spaces for young children and families.
- Design spaces that reflects the culture, history, language and traditions of all children.
- Develop relationships with families and communities through mutual respect and understanding.
