Edmonton daycare aims to teach cultural acceptance to children

The 1,000 Women Child Care Centre works with children to create and share stories about their unique cultures

Anastasia Hennigar is studying to become a hospital unit clerk at NorQuest College while her two-year-old daughter is learning about different cultures at a daycare downstairs.
Inside the playroom are cultural symbols from around the world. In one corner, Indigenous drums line a bookshelf, waiting to be played. Rugs from all four corners of the globe line the floor. In a basket near the door is an assortment of dolls of every shape, size and colour.
