Celebrating Black History Month with your children

Mother and daughter reading

Children are never too young to learn about differences. We all have different backgrounds, appearances and come in different shapes and sizes. Just like speaking and counting, empathy and celebrating others' differences are social behaviours that are learnt in early childhood.

Teaching and learning about Black History Month

  • Black History Month shines a light on wonderful and inspiring individuals, from the past to the present day
  • Understanding Black history will help your child understand the world and society we live in today
  • It can help your little ones understand lives, cultures and experiences different to their own

It's important to note that we should celebrate different cultures and diversity throughout the whole year, but Black History Month is an extra special time to do so!
