Join us on Thursday, July 29, at 2 PM ET as we are joined Madeleine Hutchison, RECE, MA Early Childhood Studies. In this webinar we will discuss how honoring and empowering children's rights in early childhood education and care is crucial in providing a healthy development in the first 5 years of life. We will focus on the core four rights for children as outlined by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and how we can create a rights-respecting environment in our early years classrooms. Modeling and empowering rights in the early years sets the foundation for healthy and supportive relationships, empathy development, self-confidence and awareness of consent and bodily autonomy. Children who grow up understanding their rights and the rights of others will develop a deep understanding of how to interact with others, respect boundaries, advocate for themselves, and know that their voice matters. Sign up today so you don't miss out!
