The book being handed over to the reader describes teaching strategies used in early childhood intercultural education. It was prepared by an international team of researchers and practitioners from WSB University, University of Ostrava, Mykolas Romeris University, Fin Edu Consult Oy working on an Erasmus + funded project. The proposed solutions were inspired by the experience of the Finnish system of inclusive education, which is characterised by a particularly high degree of openness to the cultural diversity of the student.
At the same time, thanks to ethnographic research, we adapted tried-and-tested schemes to the realities of Eastern European societies in Lithuania, the Czech Republic and Poland. Our aim was to prepare an empirically grounded position relating to early childhood teaching in a multicultural society. We attempted to ensure that the proposed solutions took into account both the concerns and needs of cultural minorities and the inclusive expectations of majority societies. Teachers and students of pedagogy will find guidelines on how to organise educational activities in practice.
