In our nurseries, we have a range of diversities and cultures so it is particularly important to educate and teach the children about the different cultures. We explore and celebrate these through play by holding festival days and playing dress up. The children love this and teaches them not only to understand other cultures, but also to be proud of where you are from.
We are always aiming to implement further education on different cultures across our nurseries, as we should celebrate all races, diversities, and ethnic origins not just on a specific day but throughout the whole year.
Expressing feelings and emotions
During activities, we engage language through play. Children get to understand words and emotions and we get to connect their experiences and describe them by getting the children to identify when they are happy, excited, and sad. These are particularly important so the child can understand and embrace their emotions.
As the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted, it is vital that we can look after our own wellbeing. We need to provide our children with the knowledge and understanding of their feelings and emotions. Our activities at nursery aim to create a bond of trust between the child and our team. So allowing, all children to speak confidently and express their feelings and emotions.
