4-C: Community Coordinated Child Care

Responding to Families with Cultural Sensitivity

Tuesday, July 30, 2019
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Location: Sterling Rock Falls Child Care, Sterling

Child development expert Peter Mangione states that no one is an expert in their own culture, much less someone else’s. This powerful statement highlights why it can be difficult for caregivers to work with families whose values and beliefs about children look different than their own. This training will support participants in recognizing that everyone has culture, but being sensitive to other’s ideas of culture takes time and practice to develop. Through this training participants will spend time recognizing their own backgrounds and the impact of our experiences on our caring practices, as well as explore skills that help participants to respond to families with a sensitivity that will build relationships, trust and support for the children in care.
