Implementation of Interculturality in Early Education

Luka Pongračić , Ana Maria Marinac



The upbringing aspect of education is often neglected for various reasons and influences. Overloaded with the amount and rate of mastering the content often throws upbringing into the background. The methodology of this paper consists of a qualitative review and analysis of domestic and foreign literature and researches with the aim of emphasizing the importance, but also ways to increase the levels of upbringing in the classroom. By analyzing different aspects of the teaching process, such as pluralism, the role of the family and different motivational contexts, there are opportunities to increase the level of upbringing. It is important in modern teaching to connect education with interculturalism, which is ubiquitous in the intercultural environment in which students attend classes, surrounded by members of different cultures and nationalities. The main goal of this paper is to point out the possibility of increasing the level of intercultural education during regular classes and to present and analyze the possibilities of implementing the intercultural nature of the educational and upbringing aspect in early education. In this way, the students we educate will be ready for the future intercultural challenges they will face on a daily basis.
