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.
