Workshop Description

We can’t always know what adversity children and families have faced in the past or currently face in their daily lives. 

In this workshop, participants will be asked to think about newcomer families, immigrant, and refugee families, to think about how we support each of these families best. Throughout the workshop, participants will be asked to think with a pedagogy of humility to better support the children and families they work with. 

*Please note, this workshop is geared toward supporting newcomer families but can be presented more broadly to include a diversity of families.

This workshop was recorded and added to the self paced collection in 2022. It is offered for free as a token of appreciation for the work Educators and child care professionals do.
