Diversity and Inclusiveness

Course Code: EDUE1125A

Credits: 2

Course Description: In early learning and childcare centres, inclusion is necessary to ensure each child has a positive learning experience and sense of belonging. Students reflect upon their own experiences, values, and biases to create an awareness of the connection between one’s views, privileges, and implementation of the curriculum.

Diversity and Inclusiveness has a focus on exploring inclusiveness and equity with children as it positively builds the learning community and the local community. “All children regardless of race, religion, age, linguistic heritage, social or economic status, gender, or ability are entitled to inclusion in everyday activities and routines” (NB Curriculum Framework).

Also, students examine Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and how students can successfully integrate the UDL principles within their own early learning and childcare centre practices.
