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.

At an early age, many children are identified as being “behind” in mathematics. This deficit label can become permanent and limit the potential of future success in mathematics. Play and inquiry are necessary for each and every student to construct their own meaning about mathematics. Unfortunately, many underserved students are excluded from engaging in play and inquiry because of perceived behavior issues, or lack of “basic skills”. Join us in this session as we explore practical strategies and activities that allow each and every student to engage in play and inquiry allowing the brilliance of all of our students to shine.
