P7.5:- Explain how the setting promotes positive images of children and reflects a diverse society.

  • Displays

When the children and their parent(‘s)/guardians entre the class room this is the first thing they will see.

  • Black baby dolls

Having black baby dolls as well as white shows the children a positive image by showing diversity. It’s showing the children diversity because even though the baby doll has different coloured skin to the majority in the setting it’s just the same as the white baby doll, for example the children will still dress the baby, feed the baby, give it their dummy, and change their nappy, just like they would with a white baby doll. By having a black baby doll for the children to play with will also make the black children ...
