Description

Early Childhood Management Services (ECMS)
Professional Learning Seminar Series

It is never as easy as it sounds: Teaching children their rights - the what, where and why

Overview

No one would argue against the rights of children being part of an early childhood curriculum. However the integration of children’s rights may seem easier to claim than it is to do. Exploring the rights of children requires an investigation of the accompanying responsibilities, the implications for everyday practices and the ways in which a rights based curriculum might pose some challenges for adults. To this end, this presentation will explore a number of interesting and necessary questions related to the rights of children. We will explore the practical implications on practice and the ways in which staff might become advocates for all children.

Who should attend?

  • Early childhood professionals

  • University and VET students

  • Researchers

  • Local government representatives

  • Policy makers

What will you learn?

  • How do we teach young children about rights?

  • How do we practice what we preach? Do we consider children’s rights when we are designing our rooms, programs and routines?

  • How can we include children’s rights in our curriculum?

  • How can you be an advocate for children’s rights?
