31 6.2: Goals

In early childhood classrooms, educators should transmit multiculturalism to children and the following goals need to be accomplished:

  1. Recognize the beauty, value, and contribution of each child and their family.
  2. Teach children to respect others’ cultures as well as their own.
  3. Talk to children about racism and current events regularly.
  4. Assist children in functioning successfully in a multicultural society.
  5. Increase children’s opportunities to talk and play with diverse people.
  6. Encourage children to experience in positive ways both their differences as culturally diverse people and their similarities as human beings.
  7. Help children notice and do something about unfair behavior and events.
  8. Help children who are affected by racism develop a positive self-esteem. [68]
