Facilitated By: Shelley Secrett, RECE

As early childhood educators, early learning professionals and parents, we value providing a safe and nurturing learning environment for all children. However, even the most well-intentioned educator might struggle with how to approach LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning) families and topics in the classroom. This dynamic and interactive workshop is designed to build the confidence and comfort level of educators seeking to create a more inclusive classroom. We will cover topics such as our early beliefs and how they impact us, appropriate and current terminology and how to creatively use family diversity resources to plant seeds of acceptance.

This is the same event as was offered on April 10 2018. Please see Rainbow Families: Digging Deeper into Creating Visibility – Part Two if you are interested in delving deeper into this topic.

This is a collaborative partnership with London Children’s Connection. An access code is available for London Children’s Connection employees.
