The revised 2019 BC Early Learning Framework (ELF) is explicit in the call to nurture a sense of well-being and belonging for all children. Circle time presents children and their caregivers with a perfect opportunity to explore and engage in anti-bias education practices; including critical thinking designed for them to discuss issues of fairness and unfairness in a safe and open environment. Supporting all children and upholding their voices is essential in nurturing a positive sense of belonging and well-being. This 2 part workshop will provide participants with information, resources, and practice creating circle times that make visible and support all children in their care. Participants will be asked to read over materials in advance to prepare for the online sessions.
