Our idea for improvement of early childhood programs is to make the teaching environments more diversity friendly. Our project enabled forty-three children and their teachers to appreciate the diversity among themselves. It helped to make the environment responsive to the cultural background of the children. It also involved families and embraced their culture. It is our hope that the seven steps described in this article will help teachers to understand children in the classroom and help children themselves to understand their heritage and feel that it is welcomed in the classroom and valued in the classroom.
