In this seminar we draw upon recent research in the Early Childhood
Education Research Centre to ask critical questions about superdiversity
in relation to children’s communicative practices, their home-based

engagement with digital technologies, and the implications for curriculum-
making of normative goals in the Early Years Foundation Stage. We

problematise the current policy framework, its mis/recognition of
superdiversity and multilingual practices, and the implications for
children’s learning in home, school and preschool settings.
