What does this event cover
This training invites educators to reflect on the quality of their provision for babies and young children. When we observe children in our care we need to consider their differences. Some of our children may come from homes where another language is spoken, or where their culture is different from the other children in our school or setting. Some children because of their gender and upbringing at home may not feel comfortable playing with the blocks or in the role play area. Other children may also experience barriers to learning, due to a disability or illness. When we observe those children we need to be aware of how these differences will affect them and not to make assumptions about their behaviour.
This course will examine and challenge educators’ pedagogical practice and values reflected in practice, through having conversations about stereotypes, unconscious bias and myths about people, culture and communities.
Set within the themes and principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage the training is broadly split into two parts.
The first part covers the basis about discussing race. The aim here is to help educators feel more comfortable and confident in doing so.
The second half explores unconscious bias and how we can become more aware of them.
