Region 9-Family Partnership and Culture

Jan. 6, 2022 5:30pm to 7:30pm

This California Preschool Instructional Network workshop provides participants ways to include family and culture in curriculum planning, how to develop effective partnerships with families building on family and cultural strengths and being supportive of families. Specific knowledge of the child’s cultural or multicultural background and life at home can be the key to effective teaching and learning. This knowledge is a valuable tool for connecting what the child already knows and values to the learning goals of your program.

Participants will:

  • Review the components and structure of the Best Practices for Planning Curriculum for Young Children: Family Partnerships and Culture.
  • Discuss how to utilize and apply information from Best Practices for Planning Curriculum for Young Children: Family Partnerships and Culture.
  • Reflect upon and share about personal culture influences in the early childhood setting.
