The Here and Now: Reimagining Early Childhoods in Urgent Times
In Issue #9 of the Here and Now, the ECPN reflects on Elder Pointe's words during the Early Childhood Educators of British Columbia (ECEBCs) conference in May. The ECPN takes seriously pedagogists' and educators' roles in creating spaces where children can flourish and a curriculum is fostered that can respond to the worlds that children inhabit. This issue also recognizes Pride Month and emphasizes the need for early childhood centers to celebrate diversity in sexuality and gender identity, thereby challenging heteronormative discourses. June 21st is National Indigenous Peoples Day, and the ECPN celebrates the work of our sister Network, The First Nations Pedagogies Network (FNPN) and the work of The Métis Nation of BC.
