Description

Course ID 86814
This is a one-day conference that consists of a keynote address and two workshop sessions (one in the morning and session in the afternoon). There are 3 workshops in each session and participants select one to attend. This year’s conference is focused on action and early childhood practices that could be brought right into classrooms or other early childhood settings with children and their families. There are a range of things participants will get out of the sessions and the sessions touch upon the following core competencies

• Child Growth and Development
• Family and Community Relationships
• Environment and Curriculum
• Professionalism and Leadership
• Culturally Responsive and Sustaining Teaching; Anti-bias Education

We have received a number of proposals around arts and creative expression (e.g. puppetry, poetry, music), supporting children with diverse abilities, emotionally responsive practices and anti-racist pedagogies, teacher identity and professional learning, as well as connecting with parents and families.

In order to grow a just community and culture, we must practice, play, create and be brave ourselves. We are hoping that at this conference all the voices in the early childhood community are heard and everyone is seen. That experiences are honored and wisdom is celebrated.
