4-C: Community Coordinated Child Care

Program for Infant Toddler Care (PITC): Culture, Family and Provider – Module 4

Saturday, December 8, 2018
8:00 AM - 4:30 PM
Location: 4-C DeKalb Office 155 N 3rd St, Suite 300 DeKalb, IL 60115

Through viewing and discussing DVDs, personal reflection, and large and small group discussions, participants explore their cultural expectations and biases and have an opportunity to learn about alternative perspectives and realities through the cultural lenses and experiences of others.  Throughout these sessions, participants will increase their awareness of their own cultural assumptions and how these assumptions may affect their interaction with families from cultures different from their own.  Participants will also explore the different emotions parents often feel when bringing their infants to infant/toddler care programs.  This type of exploration is designed to help participants increase their capacity for becoming culturally aware and responsive to families with children in infant/toddler care.
