ECE 108: Advancing Equity in Early Childhood – Awareness and Respect (1 hour)

Current Status
Not Enrolled
Get Started

According to the NAEYC, above all else, we shall not participate in practices that are disrespectful, degrading, or emotionally damaging to children. A foundational awareness of our own potential for bias is key to ensuring that teachers show respect to children and to themselves.
This introductory training will provide participants with the knowledge to begin working to advance equity in their Early Childhood Education settings. Trainees will learn the definitions of key terms, how equitable learning supports young children’s identity development, and the impacts of implicit bias in early childhood. Trainees will engage in self-reflection to consider their own background, culture, knowledge, and biases and to return with goals for future growth. This training is geared towards child care providers in all settings who serve all ages of children.
