Online Workshop Angebot auf Englisch

Workshop Series for Early Childhood Professionals – Supporting Children with Refugee and Migration Backgrounds 

Im Folgenden möchten wir Fachkräfte, die im frühkindlichen Bildungsbereich tätig sind, ganz herzlich zu unserer Online Workshopreihe einladen. Dieses Fortbildungsangebot wird in englischer Sprache stattfinden.

In many early childhood education and care facilities, valuable experiences and approaches to inclusion and support have emerged with the increased acceptance of children and families with refugee and migration biographies. Building on existing inclusive approaches, our workshops focus on the foundations of a trauma-informed learning environment, culturally sensitive family collaboration, and multilingualism. We invite you to our workshops where we will exchange ideas and explore methods of providing refugee and migrant children with a safe, mindful, supportive, and encouraging space to learn, play, and thrive. Upon registering, all participants receive comprehensive materials that invite them to reflect on themselves and their practice, and a handbook with practical exercises. The free online workshop series is aimed at all professionals and care providers working in kindergartens, refugee accommodations, family centers, child and youth assistance offices, and counseling centers who want to empower young children and families affected by displacement and migration. A certificate of participation will be provided. Further information on the different modules will be provided here:
