As early childhood educators it is our responsibility to support consistently warm, caring, and culturally responsive relationships. If our learning environments do not reflect and validate the families and their cultural identities, children may feel invisible, unimportant and ashamed of who they are. During the Broadening your Lens series we will explore defining culture, your social identity, promoting diversity in the learning environment, and culturally responsive relationships with families. Participants REQUIRED to attend ALL 4 sessions to receive certificate.
Participants that complete entire training series will receive a FREE implementation kit with materials to help attendees begin to incorporate culture and diversity in their environments.
