The model for a multicultural curriculum for early childhood education comprises the second half of the manual. Discussed are the initial planning process, how to develop a multicultural environment, the goals and objectives of curriculum development, how to organize an early childhood multiethnic curriculum using a thematic approach, the need to use community and parent resources, parent staff relationships and how to evaluate the curriculum.
