Famly Sessions S2E4: Nurturing children through an inclusive and diverse lens


As Early Years educators, it may seem obvious that our role is a nurturing one, but what does it mean to have a “nurturing pedagogy”? How does this support children’s resilience and wellbeing? And how can we weave inclusion into promoting a nurturing environment? 

On Wednesday 8th June at 7pm, Principal Lecturer & Chair of the LGBTQIA+ Steering Group, Aaron Bradbury will be hosting a special 40-minute session, followed by 20 minutes where I'll put your questions to him. He'll discuss:

  • Defining diversity and inclusion for children from LGBT families, through a lens of child-centred practices,
  • Contemporary concepts, such as developing a ‘Loving Pedagogy’, the unique child, and the voice of the child,
  • How theory, such as Bronfenbrenner, can support the above approaches with your children and families.
  • Developing an ethos within your setting that enables every child to be successful, resilient, and emotionally intelligent human beings.

On top of that, Aaron will be providing the slides from the presentation and a few of his articles, so you can continue to learn more after the session - and you'll get a certificate, too. What’s more, if you can't attend live, sign up anyway and we'll send you the recording as soon as we're finished.

Sign up for your free spot today (via the form on this page) and leave your questions. We can't wait to have you.

See you there!

Matt Arnerich is Famly's Director of Brand & Comms. He spent his first four years at Famly looking after the articles, guides and videos Famly make, and annoying the engineers with his loud laugh. Nowadays he looks after the story of what makes Famly different, helping us to get closer to our mission to make early childhood truly valued. He's still too loud for the engineers.
