Zoom Meeting

Navigating Conversations about Race and Racism with Young Children and their Families

A Workshop for Early Childhood Educators in Episcopal Schools

We know that very young children notice race, but we donít always know how to engage young children on the topic in healthy ways. Join us for a workshop designed especially for early childhood educators on engaging young children in conversations about race and racism. Participants will learn about healthy racial identity development, how young children internalize messages about race, and how to have conversations about race with children, and their families, in ways that are age-appropriate, culturally responsive, and trauma-informed.
