Beliefs, customs, and child rearing practices vary among different cultures. Family, however, is the root of each child's development. For that reason, It's a Small World places the utmost priority on honoring and respecting each family's cultural heritage. Our teachers incorporate stories, songs, and games from a wide variety of cultures and encourage parents to share about their family's traditions as well. It's a Small World's families and staff members bring tremendous diversity to our program and we embrace each and every opportunity to learn from each other.
