Early Childhood Education
Early learning leaders explore, nurture, and grow home visitors’ ability in honoring the diversity of families while partnering with them to support children’s development. This session will use the newly revised Multicultural Principles (MCP) framework to equip leaders to support home visitors in examining their own perceptions and unconscious bias and how they impact supports offered to children and families. The MCPs lay the foundation for building trust, garnering respect, valuing family identities, and understanding the reciprocity of information exchange between education staff and families reflecting the diverse cultures within the community.
