You may wonder; why is culture important in early childhood education? Research suggests adults who engage children in culturally responsive educational experiences help to:
Build young children's self-confidence and skills.
Increase children's awareness, appreciation, and inclusion of diverse beliefs and cultures.
Maximize children's academic achievement and educational success.
SELA understands and embraces diversity—cultural, linguistic, and ability diversity (CLAD). They support the unique and individualized values, strengths, and potential of each child and family. We provide a curriculum that includes multiple cultures including a child’s own culture.
