From the Early Years inspection handbook for Ofsted registered provision, effective from September 2019: 

“In order for personal development to be judged outstanding:

-The provider is highly successful at giving children a rich set of experiences that promote an understanding of people, families and communities beyond their own.

-Practitioners teach children the language of feelings, helping them to appropriately develop their emotional literacy.

-Practitioners value & understand the practice & principles of equality & diversity. They are effective at promoting these in an age-appropriate way, which includes routinely challenging stereotypical behaviours & respecting differences. This helps children to reflect on their differences & understand what makes them unique.”
