A Practical Guide to Inclusion and Diversity in the Early Years

Event code EYC 22/177 
Event description Make a difference…our awareness of difference has been heightened in recent months and discussed in the media, our homes and in settings. Inclusion is at the heart of early years practice and this course aims to empower you to be responsive to making sure children learn to celebrate difference in our settings and communities. The webinar provides insight into the child's world by celebrating difference and valuing diversity in our early years settings. The session aims to challenge attitudes and explore practical strategies to make sure every setting provides a completely inclusive experience for all children and their families.

The session will enable delegates to make positive changes to their practice by reflecting on different ways to influence stronger inclusive practice in their own setting.

This session will run as an interactive Zoom session. Delegates will be sent the link no later than 24 hours before the start date. Please ensure you are able to access Zoom at least 1 hour prior to the session. Please note that these are not recorded and therefore not available to watch at a later date and delegates need to attend as a live session.

If you have not used Zoom before and require helpful tips, we recommend having a look at these:
