Our Early Years Cultural Responsiveness Training aims to build cultural awareness, cultural knowledge, and cultural practice skills. We support educators to understand barriers to engagement, ensure they build their responsiveness and engage respectfully with culturally and racially diverse children, parents, and families. Our approach is tailored, interactive and engaging. We build and work from a psycho-social wellness model, building containers of caretaking to support educators to move into courageous spaces of learning, discussion, and reflection.
