This title provides a comprehensive guide to promoting inclusive practice in childcare and educational settings, and to taking account of children's cultural, ethnic, religious and linguistic backgrounds. For those who work in childcare and educational settings, there is an ethical and legal responsibility to promote inclusive practice and to take into account children's cultural, ethnic, religious and linguistic backgrounds. Now in its third edition, "Anti-Discriminatory Practice" has been restructured to ensure that the information is as accessible as possible for those training and working in childcare and education. As well as including recent research and current best practice, Rosalind Millam has fully updated the content to take account of the impact of recent legislation and resulting legal requirements. Practical suggestions on how to achieve and develop inclusive practice are provided, along with activities to encourage practitioners to examine and reflect upon their own attitudes towards anti-discriminatory practice. Topics covered include: race, religion and culture; major religions beliefs; the role of play and development; and identity and self-esteem.
Rosalind Millam is a trainer and consultant in early years and care.
