#ECSeries: Why is anti-racist practice important in the early years?

As part of the #ECSeries, we welcome Liz Pemberton who will discuss  ‘Why is anti-racist practice important in the early years?’

As children are growing and developing it is our job, as early years educators, to help them form a positive sense of themselves and the people in the world around them.

If we are committed to safeguarding and a duty of care, we need to acknowledge that for some children how they navigate life will be impacted by their racialised identity.  Ignoring the realities of racism is not a helpful approach.

  • How do we ensure that refugee children feel a sense of belonging in our early years settings?
  • What have we learnt based on the research about the impacts of racism for children during their earliest years?
  • What are the most suitable resources that we can use to support anti-racist practice ?

This 90 minute talk by award winning, anti-racist early years trainer and consultant Liz Pemberton will expand on the reasons why an anti-racist approach is an essential part of early years practice.

There will be an opportunity for Q&A after the presentation.
