Exploring a new culture 

INTERCULTURAL EXPERIENCES AND HOW THEY CAN LEAD TO PARENT-EDUCATOR PARTNERSHIP CHALLENGES

When exploring a new culture in order to get to know a family and a child, educators should inform themselves and one another through speaking with other colleagues and friends or by reading textbooks. Educators should be sure to clarify information they have received with the families to ensure that everything is accurate (Hall, 1976). 

Family questionnaire

Information about the family and child should already be known prior to the first personal interview. In some kindergartens, educators design a questionnaire to be given at registration. This way, it is already available for families to use in preparation of the first interview.
