    Liz Pemberton, The Black Nursery Manager, presents 'Inclusion in Role Play for the Under 5's'.

    Embedding cultures and diversity within an early years setting is a vital part of the EYFS. Children and their families will feel valued by the setting if resources and displays represent the ethnic, cultural and social diversity in society, and if they can see their own family background and culture represented as well as those of others. True inclusion means your setting will have diversity running through its core regardless of your current make-up of families on role.

    Course Aim: To promote inclusive practice in the Early Years (under 5's) education sector, with a particular focus on how race, culture and anti-racism should be considered in this practice.

    Course Information:  This course will ensure that practitioners are critically engaging and thinking about the racial and cultural inclusivity of the role play spaces in their Early Years provision. The aim is to ensure that seemingly ‘normalised practices’ are reassessed, reflected upon and changed to ensure that anti-racist practice is a part of the structure. Links to the EYFS ‘Enabling Environments’.

    Session 1 (20th January) Cultural appropriation and ‘dressing up’ , the history of ‘Yellowface' and 'Blackface' , how play helps all children to construct their world and how racial bias become interwoven into these constructs. 

    Session 2 (27th January) How practitioners can raise the aspirations of Black children through role play, why language matters and how observations during role play can extend future learning opportunities.

    Session 3  (3rd February) The diversification of the kitchen role play area, examining intersections of race and gender in the home corner and the cultural significance of the Barbershop for Black boys and how we can incorporate it in role play.

    Delivered by: Liz Pemberton (The Black Nursery Manager).  Liz runs her own Management, training & consultancy firm which focuses on anti-racist practice within Early Years. With 16 years in the education sector, Liz’s roles have included Secondary School Teacher (QTS), public speaker and up until recently, Nursery Manager, allowing her to teach, manage, support and educate Early Years students, practitioners and professionals in a variety of forums. Her mission is to promote inclusive practice in the Early Years (under 5's) education sector, with a particular focus on how race, culture and anti-racism should be considered in this practice is to promote inclusive practice in the Early Years

A clear recruitment process is the first step towards safer recruitment, enhancement of equality and to ensure a return on investment.
