This is a two-part workshop, you must register for the entire day.
Part 1 – Belonging: Providing Welcoming Environments for LGBTQ Families
During this workshop we will examine our understanding of “family.” We will explore our awareness of LGBTQ families and how we can welcome and fully include them in our programs.
Part 2 – Beyond Pink and Blue: Understanding and Supporting a Range of Gender Expression in our Programs
Many children choose play, clothing, activities and toys that challenge gender stereotypes. We will look at some historical influences on gender stereotyping and some ways in which we can honour and respect the exploration of gender expression in our classrooms.
Suitable for all early learning and child care professionals
