    Which WACs address diversity and collaboration with families?

    WAC 110-300-0160 addresses diversity as it states “An early learning provider must provide culturally and racially diverse learning opportunities.” WAC 110-300-0085 promotes the collaboration and communication between the provider and families. The early learning provider should communicate the child’s progress and behavior management concerns with the parents.

    What big messages do the WACs give regarding diversity and collaboration?

    The big message the WACs give regarding diversity and collaboration is that all children and families should be treated equally and equitably. The WACs promote diversity and encourage early learning programs to include diverse materials so children can have a more well-rounded and diverse learning experience. The WACs also promote communicating with families, to make sure that parents are involved in their child’s education and well-being. Families should feel welcomed in early learning programs.
