Abstract

This study examined the knowledge/skills early childhood teachers want to learn for implementing multicultural education for young children in South Korea. A total of 211 early childhood teachers participated in this study via a self-response questionnaire. The participants expressed a strong desire to learn more about understanding culture and multicultural education; planning, integrating, and implementing a curriculum for children from multicultural families; and collaboration and continued professionalism. Significant group differences were also found based on their educational level and years of teaching experiences.
