What are the challenges of parenting as a Newcomer to Canada? What are the challenges of caring for Newcomer children in early childhood settings? How do we bridge these value gaps to create strong rapport with newcomer families? In this workshop we will compare and contrast some of the differences in value positions from one culture to another and examine the implications for parenting and current educational service delivery in Canada. Becoming more aware of our own values and cultural beliefs allows us to be more responsive in supporting newcomer children and families.
Become more aware of our own values and how they affect our beliefs and expectations.
Discuss the origins of cultural values and how they affect the development of a given culture through history.
Become more receptive to other value positions and develop a more inclusive approach for newcomer families.
