preschool children, diversity awareness, qualitative study
This study examined the statements made by preschool children in conversations related to diversity and the perceived reasoning behind their statements. Diversity was viewed in the broad context including gender, race, ethnic origin, family structure, socio-economic status, religion, and sexual orientation. The literature review includes child development theory as it relates to the development of self-identity and self-esteem and focuses on the primary contexts of children's development as family, community, and school. The stresses placed on the non-traditional family are discussed.
