What is the Respecting Difference Programme?

Children need opportunities to discuss and acknowledge the similarities and differences between themselves and others. They also need to be able to express more effectively feelings associated with similarities and differences, including those of feeling left out.

Major research has found strong and robust evidence that the programme is effective in improving outcomes for young children in relation to their social and emotional development and awareness of and attitudes towards cultural differences. Moreover, these effects represent the added value to early years settings that the programme provides in enhancing social and emotional learning and promoting understanding of, and respect for differences. Participants will also be supported in the development of a Good Relations Plan for their setting.
