Incorporating relevant, culturally-based experiences and celebrations in children’s programs present many different learning opportunities, including
Fostering a sense of belonging and inclusion for every child, family, team and community member
Increasing children’s understandings of and respect for, diversity and differences
Raising children’s self-awareness and confidence
Providing for children’s holistic development, mind, body & spirit
Supporting a positive cultural identity for every child and family
Culture is what people have developed together, what they share and how they live together. Culture is the ideas, values, rules, norms, codes and symbols a human being takes over from the previous generation, and which one tries to bring further, sometimes with changes and then passed on to the next generation, somewhat like something that is cultivated and grows.
The Gubbi Gubbi/Joondoburri People are the first people who lived on and cared for this amazing space where we all are privileged to learn, work and play.
