Celebrating holidays in early childhood programs can bring joy to children, staff and families and can strengthen relationships between programs and the families they serve, but it can also be an unintentional way of excluding some families. We want to encourage children to see how they are the same and different from their peers. One way to begin this process might be to introduce books about different holidays celebrated around the world during these winter months.
