Celebrate diversity, traditions, and holidays



Since demographics have changed in early childhood programs, questions of how, when, and which holidays to celebrate have also become more complex and controversial. This guide provides educators with a toolbox for:
  • Developing inclusive policies
  • Evaluating holiday activities for appropriateness
  • Addressing commercialism and stereotypes
  • Involving families


Includes reproducible holiday policies, sample questionnaires for families, and a sample Holiday Practices Improvement Plan to adapt to assess the strengths and weaknesses of your own holiday activities. This hands-on guide helps you celebrate holidays in your early learning program in cultureally responsive, respectful, and inclusive ways.

Age focus: 0–8.

Review by: Deb Curtis - August 16, 2016
Celebrate! offers an insightful, helpful analysis of the complexity of working with diverse children, families, and staff to include holidays in our programs. There is a big vision offered here for living respectfully and joyfully together, as well as practical ideas for administrative structures, practices for teachers and useful language for respectful conversations. As a teacher in the program where Julie is the director, I see the daily way she takes leadership using the ideas she shares in this book. Julie's approach works to include and connect us all. It's often not easy, but so worth the effort. This book will support you well through your own journey to anti-bias holiday practices and more—it is a resource like no other.
