Professional Development

Our next online workshop will be on Saturday, October 22, at 9:00 am. Presenter Victor L. Bradley Jr. will speak on "What is Anti-Racist/Anti-Bias Curriculum and Why Should We Teach It to Young Children?"

Educators will receive a personalized set of tools designed to address their specific circumstances as they relate to the topics of gender, racism, classism, and activism. You will learn how to effectively use these resources to proactively and positively engage in developmentally appropriate initiatives with your children, parents, and community.
