I think you named it. I have to make sense of what it means to be Latino. Thank you very much. By 3 and 4, children are really ready to start making sense of the language that adults are using around race and ethnicity. As the children enter into the upper elementary grades, especially for kids who are in the numeric minority in their schools, we want to make sure that we are supporting them in their ethnic-racial identity by providing affinity groups, providing opportunities for them to see each other.

So for early childhood educators they need to have positive affirmations around the skin colors that we use to identify people, but then also help them bridge relationships between skin color and racial terminology.
