Summary

"One of the practice principles in the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) is cultural competence. This book explores what cultural competence means in the context of the different theories of child development, as discussed in the EYLF. It draws upon the latest research and presents explanations of practices from a cultural-historical perspective. The EYLF suggests that educators identify their own view of cultural competence. In keeping with this recommendation, the book supports educators through presenting examples of intentional teaching ideas, scenarios and reflective questions. It recognises the different views that multi-disciplinary teams bring to their work, and also introduces different cultural-historical concepts that support the building of cultural competence." -- Early Childhood Australia website.
