Self-Awareness and Children’s Understanding of Diversity

Saturday October 13, 2018       Time 10:00 am - 3:30 pm       5 hours 

Fee: $80.00       FCC Fee: $65.00 (Promo Code)                                                      Material’s fee included.                     

During this five hour make and take workshop broken down into three segments, participants will learn how children experience diversity awareness through developing a strong sense of self, create activities to help children feel connected to their family’s culture and recognize the diversity in their own community through shared experiences. Participants will make a resource to take home.

Objectives:

  • Explore and discuss the benefits of enabling children to develop a strong sense of self.
  • Learn how to show children they are part of their own family culture.
  • Recognize how diversity awareness plays a big part of being active in our communities. 
  • Investigate how to create meaningful and inclusive experiences for children. 

*Suitable for students, novice, intermediate and experienced early learning child care professionals working with children of all ages, from infant/toddlers to school age children, including children with extra support needs.

Presenter: Sarah Chapman-Chen. Sarah has been in the early childhood field for over 20 years, during which time she has had opportunities to work directly with children and families in a variety of capacities. While working at Westcoast, Sarah also provided anti-bias and diversity training throughout the province. She is currently operating a family child care in her home.
