Men In Child Care (Community of Practice)

February 17, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Men in Child Care

Community of Practice

Facilitated by Brian Silveira

Although there have recently been positive focus on men in the early childhood classroom, men are still largely underrepresented. Even those of us who have been in the field for years have struggled with our identities, roles and responsibilities. It is rare that we have workshops and meetings to reflect on the joys and challenges that we face in the field. What biases do we hope to dispel? How do we wish to grow and how do we want the world to see us? Using a reflective model, Brian will facilitate four meetings focused on our real experiences. He hopes to get a broad cross-section of men and women working in different capacities and with different age groups.
