    According to WAC 110-300-0085 Family partnerships and communication. An early learning provider must communicate with families to identify individual children’s developmental goals. And an early learning provider must attempt to obtain information from each child’s family about that child’s developmental, behavioral, health, linguistic, cultural, social, and other relevant information. The provider must make this attempt upon that child’s enrollment and annually thereafter.

    This is a very important part of working with children to cooperate with their parents so we learn more information about their children and parents learn about the development of their children

    According to WAC 110-300-0160 Promoting acceptance of diversity. An early learning provider must provide culturally and racially diverse learning opportunities. Diverse learning opportunities must be demonstrated by the provider’s curriculum, activities, and materials that represent all children, families, and staff. A provider must use equipment and materials that include, but are not limited to:

    (a) Diverse dolls, books, pictures, games, or materials that do not reinforce stereotypes;

    (b) Diverse music from many cultures in children’s primary languages; and

    (c) A balance of different ethnic and cultural groups, ages, abilities, family styles, and genders.
