Playful Traditions

When planning for inclusive holiday celebrations, we must consider the whole child and make clear connections to our families. Traditions can keep us grounded and give us hope. They hold the memories of our past, ground us in the present, and give us a vision for the future. Traditions also help us build a sense of belonging and community. Here are some tips for weaving playful traditions into an early childhood program so they can become part of your program’s collective culture.
