Summary

This booklet addresses the issue of special occasions and how they are celebrated. It presents three lists of celebrations: those that focus on young children and have meaning for them; those that parents may choose and therefore are likely to acknowledge diversity among families, races, religions, classes and cultures; and those that the early childhood staff suggest which usually mirror religious or commercial events promoted by society. Some accounts of how teachers celebrate the following in their centers are included and provide examples of how Christmas, cultural differences, birthdays, and Fathers' and Mothers' Day are celebrated in several early childhood programs. One teacher describes some of the milestones of childhood which she celebrates: losing a tooth, success with a skill, having grandparents come to stay, the wonder of nature, and the sponsoring of a child. The characteristics of child-centered celebrations are discussed and the question, "Who is in Charge of These Celebrations?" is considered. (BAC)
