Discussion 2.3: For lead teachers - How can you create a welcoming environment, encouraging staff to collaborate with children and their families?

You can create a welcoming environment by providing multicultural resources, such as books, music, and toys, that celebrate diversity and confidence in oneself. You can provide trainings on diversity to staff and encourage them to study differing cultures and traditions, involve parents/guardians in the classroom, and enjoy welcoming everyone yourself with an open mind and kind outlook. For example, when teaching, I try to ask the child about things they enjoy doing at home, such as raising chickens, and respectfully listening to their stories about their lives. This allows me to model a welcoming outlook and to create a welcoming environment.
