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.

En una sociedad diversa, es importante que las maestras estemos preparadas para integrar a las familias de diferentes antecedentes culturales. Trabajar con un grupo culturalmente diverso es reconocer la riqueza que representan cada uno de ellos. Fomentar el sentido de pertenencia es determinante para hacer a las familias sentirse aceptadas y bienvenidas. ¿Qué puedes hacer tú para apoyar a la diversidad cultural de tus estudiantes y hacerlos sentir que pertenecen?  ¿Cómo puedes hacer sentir a las familias orgullosas de donde vienen, de su cultura y lenguaje materno? Acompáñanos en esta conferencia a aprender estrategias para la integración y aceptación de la diversidad cultural.
