#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? In this talk, Liz expands on the reasons why an anti-racist approach is an essential part of early years practice. Resources Download presentation
