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.

Jeanette Crystal Bradley is Director of Preschool Education and Author of “The First 12 Days of Preschool.”  Her 25 years of experience have equipped her to bring solutions to problems parents face when enrolling their children in preschool.  As “Preschool for All” becomes a reality, more parents and children will experience anxiety and uncertainty.  “The First 12 Days of Preschool” helps parents and children discover what to expect in preschool as they experience the classroom coming to life.  Children and parents will be able to overcome “preschool anxiety.”  The book and music video demonstrate social justice and equality in a high-quality learning center.  These tools demonstrate anti-bias and culturally sensitive teaching that children can experience while singing and dancing.  This is an excellent way to remove fears while demonstrating social justice and diversity in the classroom.  This will prepare all children for success before even stepping foot into the classroom.
