The toolkit has four sections.

Getting ready

This section addresses the preliminary issues involved in creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for newcomer children and their parents.

 

Early days

This section is concerned with the first steps towards the integration of children from other countries, cultures and ethnicities during the first weeks and months.

 

Moving On

This section is concerned with ongoing provision for children in the pre-school setting, including language development, monitoring and assessing progress and celebrating diversity.

 

What next?

This section considers planning for inclusion and diversity which includes auditing of current practice, action planning for priority areas of development and staff training needs.

It is recommended that teachers familiarise themselves with the general content and layout of the toolkit as any section may be relevant at one time or another.
