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 culturally responsive, respectful, and inclusive ways.
