This chapter conveys that good equalities practice, especially in regard to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans community (LGBT) diversity. In the current inspection process people would argue that resources that show LGBT diversity in the activities and play of children are reflected in good practice judgments. The innovative Persona Doll approach encourages children to develop empathy and challenge discrimination and unfairness. One book led the Inner London Education Authority (ILEA) to be mentioned in Parliament, as they held a copy of Susanne Bosche's Jenny Lives with Eric and Martin as part of their resources for teachers. There may be some differences in reaction from parents in the two settings. This is where people's policies will be very important so that peoples can show parents their commitment to equality and diversity includes all children and all families who currently use their setting, who may use it in the future or who are part of their community.
