As early childhood educators, we need to remember that we need to connect with communities and give back. Humanity starts small; children are loving, caring and extremely empathetic. Communities are hurting and childcare centres should connect to them more. In this workshop participants will understand that community begins in the classroom, explore ways to connect to our communities, discuss the benefits of inter-generational activities, integrate social justice in early childhood education, and investigate what ‘democracy’ looks like in a classroom.
Suitable for all early learning professionals.
