Little Peoples Place Early Learning Centre Diversity Calendar 2016 Celebrations can be as diverse as each of the children in a child care service. When incorporated into children's services appropriately, celebrations can be used to bring people together, to create a feeling of belonging and to develop a sense of community amongst families, educators and children. The incorporation of celebrations into children's services programs can be an enriching experience for children, educators and families. If incorporated in a sensitive and respectful manner, celebrations can provide an opportunity for children to develop respect for diverse values and beliefs as they learn about practices which are different to their own. ‘Children belong first to a family, a cultural group, a neighbourhood and a wider community. Belonging acknowledges children's interdependence with others and the basis of relationships in defining identities. In early childhood and throughout life, relationships are crucial to a sense of belonging. Belonging is central to being and becoming in that it shares who children are and who they can become' Cultural awareness, respect and diversity is embedded into our daily practices at the centre.
