Child at the centre

Australia, 1988

Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

Episode of Series “Australian mosaic”.
In this frank and uninhibited documentary parents and childcare workers talk candidly about that widely used but rarely understood term - multiculturalism. Rather than separate and draw attention to differences, the childcare experts interviewed here create an environment where cultures fuse and blend. “The Child at the Centre” shows us a rich slice of Australia, very much a ‘hands on’ approach to early childhood education that benefits all children whatever their cultural background.
