During the preschool years, children are beginning to develop their understandings of gender, sexuality, and family. As children discover these concepts, there is little opportunity for early childhood educators and families to talk about the questions and behaviors that come up in their classrooms and homes. The Institute is committed to providing educators, professionals, parents, and family members with the opportunity to explore these questions, gain new resources, and collaboratively develop strategies for working with young children.

The Institute is offering another series of workshops on “Gender, Sexuality, and the Family” designed to spark discussion, facilitate the creation of shared language, and provide educators and families with the resources they need to make their classrooms and homes supportive spaces for the development and exploration of identity. The set of workshops for early childhood educators and professionals will begin on the following dates:

  • Monday, June 19th from 5:00 pm-8:00 pm
  • Saturday, July 22nd from 9:30 am-12:30 pm
  • Saturday, August 19th from 9:30-12:30 pm

The workshops can be attended as a series of three or individually. Learn more and RSVP here.
