    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, and 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.

    Age focus: 0–8.
