This study reports on major experiences in the lives of ethnic minority children and their families who are living in small numbers in a large and predominantly white area. The ethnic minority population of urban centres in Hull and Scunthorpe is diverse, yet small, much less than the national average. Ethnic minorities are not a homogenous group, but are generally facing, everyday, key experiences or racism (for children and adults) and isolation (especially for women). Adults and children are multi-lingual, but some adults have minimal language. Children mediate between two cultures at home and school, developing an identity incorporating parts of two cultures. The study arose from research looking at the day care needs of minority ethnic families in Hull and Scunthorpe. Families, community groups and day care providers were interviewed. This report includes views on day care services from minority ethnic families and day care providers views of how they should respond to minority ethnic needs. Cost is a major barrier to use, but day care providers outlined their own needs for training, on cultural awareness. anti-racist strategies and the use of multi-cultural resources for the learning and development of all children. The small and diverse minority ethnic population in Hull and Scunthorpe is not unique. This report is useful reading for all public service policy makers and practitioners, especially local authority managers and other professionals in education, health and social services. It should also be of interest to voluntary sector agencies, and those interested in, and concerned for, children's development.
