Primary Speaker name:
The COVID- 19 pandemic reminded the early care and education field that the supports that we provide to children and families are truly essential. This is especially true for children that experience social injustice and disparities, and so the supports we provide should always be provided within the cultural context of the family. In addition, these supports are vital in providing young children with the building blocks necessary for success in school and life. During the COVID- 19 pandemic, educators, service providers, and family members have had to readjust how to provide support for young children’s learning and development. Participants will learn about the video series that features diverse children and families, as well as a facilitator guide that fosters group discussion around these critical issues.
