Learn to develop and implement culturally focused curriculum and resources that draw upon local First Nations cultures. Locally developed curriculum relies on input from parents, community members and knowledge keepers and is accepted and used more meaningfully by caregivers and child care centres. Participants of this workshop will be introduced to some the new cultural resources available through the BCACCS resource centre.
