Create an Inclusive Culture

An inclusive culture honors the lived experience of families in early childhood programs and/or school community. Self-assess with the following:

  • How are your practices inclusive of all families?
  • How are you learning about families lived experiences?
  • Who is leading and supporting the creation of the welcoming culture?
