How can you bring the things about home/ your place of origin that are valued into your new home/place of origin. It may help to place these traditions/routines on the calendar or somewhere where your child can see and look forward to them!
Start the Conversation
With increased media attention surrounding immigration, family separations, deportations and asylum seekers, your young ones may have questions regarding this complex topic. Last year, we started the conversation and helped provide your young one with an empathic social-emotional understanding of immigration through story and theatre. This year, we’re going to continue that conversation. This extended video is designed to provide your young ones with information about immigrant and refugee experiences while exploring what it might feel like to arrive and be welcomed to a new place for the first time.
