Resources on Culture and Child Development

    Hello!

    I am wondering if anyone can recommend a good book or resource on child development in different cultures. Our program is in a college town and we have many families from different countries who attend. I would love to educate myself and our staff on how cultural norms and expectations differ around the world.

    Thanks!

    Hi @Abby Kurlfink,

    These NAEYC publication articles and the resources cited might be helpful Diverse Children, Uniform Standards: Using Early Learning and Development Standards in Multicultural Classrooms, Culturally Appropriate Positive Guidance with Young Children and NAEYC Cultural Competence Content.

    Best,
    Erin
