6 sessions: October 13, November 10, December 8, January 12, February 9 & March 9 “What would our practice look like if we lifted up the daily chores of caring as honorable rituals and essential educational practices?” Caring is not only a physical task - caring requires an attitude and a relationship. In routines such as washing and dressing, feeding and comforting, we transform daily rituals through care relationships into opportunities for teaching and learning. The child is learning every moment and learning the deepest lessons through the caring exchange. Text from author Carol Garboden Murray's book Illuminating Care: The Pedagogy and Practice of Care in Early Childhood Communities. We are excited to have you join us as we explore the powerful book, Illuminating Care by Carol Garboden Murray. Together we'll engage in collaborative dialogue, discussions, and critical reflection of our current practice. We'll explore what it is that author Ms. Murray's states: “new way of thinking about care and incorporating it into the heart of our pedagogy.” This Community of Practice is for anyone working with children who is looking for new ways to inspire learning and create a community within early childhood education.

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to many new resources that engage families in authentic Indigenous resources and books that teach children about the diversity of Indigenous peoples and cultures. By the end of this workshop, I hope you will be able to answer the following questions: Who are some of the local Indigenous authors? Where can I purchase authentic Indigenous resources? What makes a resource authentic? How can I connect story books to oral story telling? Why do I need to include Indigenous resources if I don’t have any Indigenous families in my program?

This workshop looks at discussing how we represent gender in the classroom in an inclusive environment. Looking at critical literacy with the power books hold on children’s images of gender through representation, this workshop also looks at addressing how we as educators may be influenced by our ideas of gender roles and how they become portrayed in the classroom, discussing ways to make our classrooms inclusive for all children, regardless of gender.
