Two video and resource materials have been developed by Alannah Dore to empower early childhood teachers and educators to embed Cultural Diversity into their programs for children aged birth to 2 years, and their families. This project was made possible through an AGECS Fellowship for Leadership and Change grant in 2016.

The resources that accompany each video use quotes from people who feature in the video to stimulate reflection and action. The videos and resources are available to early childhood teachers and educators to use individually and as part of their staff development.
