Culturally Relevant and Anti-Bias Early Learning Environments

  1. What resources are available to help my child learn a language?

Several resources have been availed to help children learn language appropriately. One of the major resources is the use of books.

  1. How can I support my child’s learning in the classroom?

Children’s learning must be supported in all ways possible. A common way to support the child’s learning is providing requirements such as reading materials and toys that are useful for learning. Parents can collaborate with the teachers to create a supportive learning environment. This collaboration enables teachers to know the challenges and areas of weakness a child has and consequently develop a learning environment addressing such needs. Collaboration leads to the provision of all necessary information concerning a child. According to Swanson(2018), a positive and supportive learning environment is established through collaboration between parents and teachers since crucial information is availed. Being part of the whole learning process by attending meetings and following up can help support a child’s learning.
