Program for Infant Toddler Care, Module 4, Culture, Families and Providers

Starts in 3 Days, 16 Hours

May 11 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm

    This training focuses on culture and its implication for families and providers.  Participants will learn how family experiences, knowledge, and childrearing beliefs and practices can be incorporated into early care and classroom settings.  Cultural expectations and biases will be explored, and participants will have the opportunity to increase their cultural awareness in terms of how their assumptions may affect their interaction with young children and families.  Participants will demonstrate their understanding of how family structures, diversity in social, cultural, linguistic, or religious backgrounds influence family approaches to parenting in children birth to three, each other, and the community.  Participants will gain an understanding of how relationships among caregivers, infant/toddlers, and families can impact other child-family, child-practitioner, and practitioner-family relationships.
