Wired to Move: Facts and Strategies for Nurturing Boys in an early childhood setting Return to listing


This interactive workshop focuses on the number of boys that are being expelled from preschool, particularly boys of color, and provides specific strategies for early childhood professionals to use in in classrooms. Participants will learn how to support children with diverse learning styles in early childhood settings including strategies for preventing expulsion with a primary focus on boys. Participants will learn about inclusive practices, boy friendly and father friendly strategies, literacy and resilience.

Participants will complete a checklist to determine if their classroom is boy friendly, and will develop a implementation plan that they will complete doing the session and can use when they return to their early childhood program.
