Design and make a leaflet for parents to welcome them when they and their children first join the setting. The leaflet should describe your policies and procedures directly related to anti-discrimination and inclusion, and the key values that your setting promotes.
Use the leaflet as an opportunity to invite parents to tell you about their family culture and beliefs, remembering that disclosing this sort of information is entirely optional. Ask parents to let you know if there is anything that your setting can do to better support their beliefs, culture, values and preferences, as a way to better reflect the community’s diversity. Amongst other ideas of your own, you may want to ask them to consider:
Religious events, holidays and festivals
Dietary requirements or preferences related to their culture or religion Any key cultural or religious values
Stories, nursery rhymes, songs and games
