The Anti-Racist Preschooler
First United Church Nursery School and the Collaboration for Early Childhood are proud to present the Oak Park Preschool Parent Workshop:
The Anti-racist Preschooler
With Juanta Griffin, Multicultural Coordinator, OPPL
In this workshop we will explore ways to discuss anti-racism with preschoolers. This workshop seeks to promote anti-racism actions in ways that young children and their parents can actively apply to counteract racism in our diverse, inclusive society. We will share anti-racist children's literature and language to encourage prosocial, emotional development of preschool-aged children.
