This training explores how gender stereotyping impacts on children’s sense of self and sense of others. Children are ‘coded’ by everything around them – the environment, language, cultural references and most influentially the adults. We will reflect on how it is possible to provide an environment that challenges the many stereotypes that exist, encourages children to explore who they are and discourages prejudice. The second part of this session will be an opportunity for you to share your own research that you will lead in your own setting.
During the sessions participants will have the opportunity to:
· Consider the impact of socially constructed gender ‘norms’ on children in the early years and how this might contribute to the gender achievement gap
· Reflect on the use of everyday language that could compound gender stereotyping
· Explore how we consider gender when planning the learning environment
· Consider how all children can be supported to explore and reach their full potential without fear of discrimination for being themselves
· Reflect on your own practice and be guided through your own further research
