Making a Difference to Children Disadvantaged Through Poverty by Simone Barnes

The term disadvantage is one that is well known amongst early years professionals. The children’s commissioner describes it as “a term used to describe children facing barriers to success” but also acknowledges that the definition comes with complexities due to the many ways it can manifest itself.

Webinar: A Reflective Approach to Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion in EYs Settings With Dr Sharon Colilles

Webinar: A Reflective Approach to Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion in EYs Settings With Dr Sharon Colilles

Reflecting on her own story and being guided by her doctoral research, Dr Sharon Colilles will support educators across all disciplines in early childhood to further develop awareness and understanding about how play can act as a vehicle for reflection on participatory pedagogy and practice.

She will reflect on how the environment can be an ideal space in which to value and validate children’s diverse ethnic backgrounds and how culturally appropriate resources can facilitate rich conversations about a positive sense of self with young children.

The webinar will support early years educators to reflect on principled approaches for inclusion and how adaptations in pedagogical approach can foster a strong sense of self, sense of belonging and sense of wellbeing for the diverse learner.
