In July we celebrate the National Aboriginal and Islander Day of Commemoration (NAIDOC Week) with an exploration of indigenous culture, language, stories and art. As an early years program we recognise that diversity contributes to the richness of our society and provides a valid evidence base about ways of knowing. For Australia it also includes promoting greater understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ways of knowing and being. (Early Years Learning Framework for Australia 2009).
