In early childhood education, there is growing support for Reconciliation and increasing awareness about the role early childhood educators play in enacting Reconciliation as part of classroom and whole-centre activities. While educators articulate support for Reconciliation, it can be difficult to identify how some attitudes and practices reinforce inequities in practice, and undermine educators’ efforts. These inequities are often subtle forms of racism, but are rarely identified in this way. Racism is also rarely discussed in early childhood circles.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
