Online: With the subject of diversity being such a forefront topic in the world today, we must recognize the importance and value of helping each other learn how to understand and respect all people – appreciating and valuing their diversity as opposed to criticizing it. This workshop is designed for teachers and parents who want to help their young child begin this understanding at an early age – the time when impressions of the world and people begin forming and the time when those wonderful seeds of acceptance can be planted. In this workshop we will look at ways to encourage positive diverse views with children using ‘child friendly’ activities and play to help instill those values in our children. Above all, participants will not only leave with a better understanding of how to encourage diversity appreciation in children, but also will leave with useful resource materials and ideas to implement with the children they work with.
