Perhaps diversity and inclusion are terms you hear and possibly speak about each day but when did you last stop to think about what they really mean?  Early education and care professionals are placed to ‘make a change ‘in the culture of their centre and community. 

Be this change and join with the Gowrie NSW Education Hub to unpack your questions of diversity and inclusion and examine your own bias.  Understand diverse groups within your centre community including:

·         CALD

·         Disabilities/Abilities

·         LGBTIQ,

·         Children with additional needs

·         Indigenous

·         Gifted and talented

Learn how to have challenging conversations with families and when necessary obtain extra support. Respectful practices that affirm each child and their family are at the heart of environments that embrace the diversity of all individuals.
