Children today will form friendships, learn with and interact with people from many cultures different to their own. When children grow up to understand, appreciate and respect the cultural, racial and ethnic diversity around them, this builds a positive and accepting community.This kind of community supports children to develop skills and attitudes that will assist them in their relationships and contribute to their social and emotional wellbeing.
