Description

Racism doesn’t just start; it grows. Early childhood educators can stop it at the start. The early years are a critical time when stereotypes are reinforced, and educators must be intentional in challenging racism every day. Action takes knowledge and courage.  This webinar will help you to:

  • Understand how our own biases impact our practice? (EYLF, p.11)
  • Challenge stereotypes in promoting a culture of inclusiveness through an anti-bias curriculum (Exceeding Theme 2)
  • Encourage all children to challenge stereotypes and biases and develop a deep understanding and appreciation of cultural diversity
  • Identify books, resources and materials that promote equity and inclusion 
  • Be brave in challenging casual racist comments in the staff room
