How does the service provider ensure that all educators demonstrate that they value, respect and contribute to an environment which is culturally safe for all, including Aboriginal & Torres Strait islander’s people? To ensure that all educators demonstrate respect and contribute to an environment which is culturally safe for all the center is based on the EYLF. All educators must have training and knowledge about the framework and work in accordance with the principles and practices indicated in it. There is a practice related to the cultural competence that all educators follow and show the elements to successfully included cultural competence in their practices: skills, knowledge and attitudes. They hold meetings where they review their educational practice and attend courses that include cultural competence in them. They also develop a curriculum that is culturally appropriate and developed in consultation with families and community will ensure that children and families, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families, are actively participating and contributing their knowledge and ideas as learning evolves. 8) How do the educators reflect this in their practices? Culturally competent educators will reflect on practice through professional learning and side by side discussion with communities and families. The educators of my center always maintain an open and positive communication with both the children and their families. It is important for them to feel part of the community and what better way than listening and being respectful to families.

They encourage families to be active participants and contribute in the service with new ideas and suggestions if they have them. This makes the center very cultural, since there are families of different cultural background but all coexist in a respectful and balanced way. Educators are also concerned that it is accessible to everyone, that there are resources and materials from different cultures and that they promote cultural diversity. The educators try to learn key words in the origin language of the children to be able to communicate better, we read stories that show different cultures, they made and display decorations from aboriginal art, etc. Personally, I think that the best way for educators to demonstrate this in their practices is to see how children play and learn together and feel happy and safe in an environment they share with other peers with different backgrounds, and I can feel that happiness.
