Action for Racial Equality in the Early Years: Understanding the Past, Thinking about the Present, Planning for the Future. A Practical Handbook for Early Years Workers.
Early years workers can help create an environment for young children that fosters equality. This handbook seeks to help readers understand racism and its effects by focusing on: (1) general issues of fairness and equality; (2) what we understand prejudice and racism to mean; (3) how children learn to be prejudiced; (4) ways of helping children and adults talk about equality and racism; and (5) how to promote and enjoy differences between people. The handbook offers detailed advice on how early years settings and services in Great Britain can plan a strategy for promoting equality by setting up clear policies for equality and establishing a framework for implementing these policies across the whole early years service. The handbook also provides information about government guidance and laws on racial equality, including the Race Relations Act 1976 and the Children Act 1989. (EV)
