Decolonizing Early Childhood Education: New Workshop

July 31, 2019

"To help early childhood educators engage Indigenous voices and develop practices to incorporate Indigenous worldviews into their programs, the BC Council for Families has developed a new workshop in partnership with UBC Child Care Services. ECEs are invited to join with an open mind and heart to reflect on the continual influences of colonization and share how this has affected them personally and professionally.

"The course will explore how educators can develop pedagogy and practices that are post-developmental, situated in land-based knowledges, and incorporate Indigenous worldviews in culturally respectful ways, as well as, appropriate steps to take when connecting with local Indigenous community members."

Date: Saturday, October 26, 2019

Time: 9am-4:30pm

Location: UBC Childcare Salal Daycare, 5655 Osoyoos Crescent, Vancouver
