Culturally Valued Traditions

Abacus is a place where everyone belongs, this component of our program focuses and explores different cultures and traditions with a range of planned experiences and resources. Children are encouraged to embrace their home language and heritage as they become aware of connections, similarities and differences between people within our community. We will embrace and respond to children’s expertise, cultural traditions and ways of knowing the multiple languages spoken by some children, and strategies used by children with additional needs to negotiate their everyday lives.
