'Building Belonging'

Educational Resource
‘Building Belonging’ is a comprehensive toolkit of early education resources which includes an eBook, song with actions, educator guide, posters, and lesson plans. It is focused on encouraging respect for cultural diversity and tackling racial prejudice in early childhood settings.

The 'Building Belonging' materials are made for various places like preschools, kindergartens, day-cares, and primary schools. They are intended to help Australian early childhood educators teach kids about respecting different cultures and diversity. The resources are designed to help kids reach learning goals set by the Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian Curriculum.  

These resources satisfy requirements of the National Quality Standard and are linked to the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers. Additionally, these resources support the fulfillment of children’s rights principles outlined in Early Childhood Australia’s Statement of Intent ‘Supporting young children’s rights’. 

You can download the full toolkit in either PDF or Word documents as a ZIP file by accessing the "Building Belonging Toolkit PDF" and "Building Belonging Toolkit Word" links below. Alternatively, you will find the download links for each individual resource on the Commission website
