Get Started

A key principle of NAEYC’s Code of Ethical Conduct is that we shall care for and educate children in positive emotional and social environments that are cognitively stimulating and support each child’s culture, language, ethnicity, and family structure. This includes teachers’ understanding of how to create learning environments that reflect children’s lives and expand their awareness of others.

This training will build on the information in module 1, Advancing Equity in Early Childhood – Awareness and Respect, and will provide participants with the knowledge to create a culturally responsive environment for each child. Trainees will learn the importance of incorporating non-biased materials and activities that reflect children’s lives and expand their understanding of diversity. Trainees will continue to self-reflect to consider their knowledge and biases and implement an environmental improvement goal.

This training is geared towards infant, toddler, preschool, or school-age staff.
