The Our Community - a Place of Welcome box has been developed especially for nursery and Early Years practitioners to support young children and families who use English as an additional language (EAL). The contents include a rich array of story books that have characters from different cultural and religious backgrounds and of different colour. A persona doll with instructions can be used to stimulate conversations. The box also includes CDEC's well known Zogg story and teacher aids, as well as a Zogg soft toy!
The Our Community - a Place of Welcome box has come out of Cumbria's Community Integration Project funded by the Home Office and run by AWAZ Cumbria.
