    Implementation Considerations

    Target population: children, families and educators in kindergarten settings who require support in the area of cultural awareness and inclusion.

    Factors to consider: services will need to ensure that cultural supports are appropriate to the local area and community.
     
    Staffing: services should consider the cost of backfill when determining the cost of accessing training.
