Family Diversity Resource Pack 2 (3 – 6 years)
Children’s books and implementation resource
All families are different. Children from diverse families, including those with LGBTQ+ parents, experience increased disadvantage and suffering. All education and care services need to be proactive in designing welcoming environments and planning for education on family diversity, even if the service does not yet have many or any diverse families. Early childhood education and care services are positioned to reduce discrimination and disadvantage for diverse families through the practical and embedded celebration of family diversity.
This collection of children’s books, along with the Resource Guide, have been curated in consultation with Rainbow Families as an essential resource to support early childhood services in taking the first steps to reduce disadvantage for all families. By using this resource pack, educators can create meaningful opportunities for children to explore, engage and ask questions about family diversity.
This resource pack has been developed specifically for children 3 – 6 years old, but can be adapted for use with children of any age.
