Trainer: Michelle Richling, VTAEYC Exchange Fellow for “Our Diversity”
Description: We will discuss the importance of communicating with families about diversity. We will learn to recognize our own implicit and explicit biases and how this may impact not only our interactions with families and children but the way in which we view or understand a child’s behavior. We will discuss a framework of communication with families about uncomfortable topics, including how to prepare, welcome diverse perspectives, and cultivate a positive and supportive partnership with all families.
Closed training details: This training is designed especially for members of Vermont Early Childhood Networks (VECN). However, there may be space for other early childhood educators. If interested, please register today.
