Politics of ECE Series

Politics of ECE is a new learning series where early childhood educators and early years providers can come together with academics and researchers to explore the connections between our work and to make visible how politics, policy, and funding are lived. The series consists of pre-recorded video lectures and conversations, and live watch parties where we've come together as a community to explore the content together. All resources from the series will be posted on this page as they become available.

Government 101

In our first session, Government 101, we heard from sector experts and educators about how the government works, where child care policy fits in and reflected together on how these policies and decisions are lived in our practice as early childhood educators and individuals.
