Getting Started: The First 30 Days Through a Culturally-Responsive Lens

The first 30-days of a child’s experience within an early learning setting, can impact a child’s perception of peers, school, and teachers. Such experience can develop within a child a sense of belonging (feeling like this is a place where I can be myself, grow, and feel happy) or a sense of disconnect (feeling like this place is so different and scary, I can’t be myself, and I am feeling alone and lost).  In this training, educators preview approaches, resources, and tools for creating a climate of caring and developing a culturally responsive learning environment for children and their families. 

Audience: Birth-to-5, infant, toddler, and preschool teachers, providers, and administrators
