|Samenvatting||Today cultural and racial diversity is a reality in many countries and there is growing recognition that ensuring that modern diverse societies|
function is about more than ‘the more we get together’. Instead, real recognition and respect for diversity requires thoughtful public policy that begins with a well-woven safety net of settlement, employment, training and education, health and economic and social programmes; all of which are important. But among these, it is recognised that early childhood education and care (ECEC) is a key link – a central connection in the safety net. ECEC can be a primary means of supporting and strengthening social inclusion in a meaningful way by playing multiple vital roles for both children and adults in creating social inclusion in diverse societies.
