Newsletter 7: Understanding cultural competence
One of the purposes of the e-Newsletter series is to open up big ideas from the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) for thoughtful reflection and discussion. This e-Newsletter focuses on 'Cultural competence' which is one of the eight key practices that the EYLF highlights as essential to support children's learning. 'Cultural competence' is one of those expressions where we all think we know what it means, but we might all mean something different. It's a term and a set of concepts we need to return to and come to understand over time.
