The Influence of Culture in Infant-Toddler Child Care Settings
Test, Joan
ZERO TO THREE, v35 n4 p19-26 Mar 2015
It is not only in families that young children are influenced to become members of their culture. Around the world and within individual countries, culture influences how care is provided to infants and toddlers in child care settings. In turn, infants and toddlers begin to learn how to act and think as members of their culture. From ways that teachers handle conflicts between toddlers, to how teachers manage transitions, to the organization of groups and physical environments, to more conscious transmission of culture through curriculum, culture influences infants and toddlers to become cultural beings that function well within their culture. This article explores cultural variations in group care and what infants and toddlers learn from these practices about being members of a culture.
