Exploring the word, the context, and links to how Birth to Five Matters non statutory guidance supports this and to mean something when looking at the child through a lens of inclusion and diversity. The session will focus primarily on children and families who are from the LGBTQ community. How are we gaining the voices of the child when it comes to representation within our Early Years settings? There will be a range of takeaway ideas on how to achieve some of this when working within your setting and flipping the narrative and position of our own practices when it comes to our Early Years environments.
