Chinese immigrants in New Zealand early childhood settings: perspectives and experiences

journal contribution
posted on 2012-03-01, 00:00 authored by Karen GuoKaren Guo
This article discusses the perspectives and experiences of Chinese immigrant parents in New Zealand early childhood settings. The findings suggest that the parents' behaviour is aimed at raising children with an understanding of both New Zealand and Chinese culture. A key feature of this bicultural development, however, is a disconnect between activities at home and at childcare. The research highlights conflicts involved in forming a cross-cultural community of practice in which immigrants' funds of knowledge interact with those of early childhood centres.
