Families and Diversity

Course Code: SOCI1046A

Credits: 2

Course Description: Over the course of history, families in Canada have become increasingly diverse. It is essential to maintain an awareness of the diversity of families in order to form and maintain reciprocal relationships.

Families and Diversity explores the diverse nature of families from a current perspective to develop a broader sensitivity to the unique strengths and challenges of families in our society. Students also examine differing parenting styles and parent-child relationships through a variety of cultural lenses. 

As early childhood educators, students develop techniques to maintain a family centered and culturally sensitive atmosphere in order for an early learning centre to show value and belonging for all children and their families.
