Get Started

This training continues our journey in advancing equity in early childhood and focuses on the topic of culturally responsive interactions for children. This training builds on what you have learned in Advancing Equity in Early Childhood – Awareness and Respect.  In this training, you will continue to reflect on your own attitudes, beliefs, and biases as you learn strategies to provide positive interactions that support children’s development and welcome each child’s unique background.  Trainees will learn the importance of building each child’s identity and belonging, strategies for positive and emotionally supportive interactions, and how to prevent and respond to negative interactions such as stereotypical or biased thinking. Trainees will continue to self-reflect to consider their background, culture, knowledge, and biases and implement an improvement goal relating to interactions. This training is geared towards infant, toddler, preschool, or school-age staff.

An application activity will be required for the completion of the training and will focus on creating a goal to support children through culturally responsive interactions.

Before taking this training, completing Advancing Equity in Early Childhood – Awareness and Respect is required.
