The 19th Annual Early Years Conference focus is Social Justice in Early Learning and Care.

Social justice in early childhood education is about ensuring that all children and families receive the educational and social opportunities responsive to their cultural identity. High quality programs put social justice teaching front and center by prioritizing anti-bias and culturally sensitive teaching.

This workshop aims to address systems that fail to offer access to care, where there is misdiagnosis labeling children bad instead of needing support, lack of culturally responsive treatment choices, and misuse of medication. This workshop will use interactive adult learning during which participants will build on their own experiences to develop skills to support families to use reflective, responsive caregiving with young children using a model that is fitted to the culture and values of the family. The methods are evidence based developmental, relationship based practices that are utilized nationally and internationally.
