Understanding and Supporting a Range of Gender Expressions

Many children choose play, clothing, activities and toys that challenge gender stereotypes. We will look at some historical influences on gender stereotyping and some ways in which we can honour and respect the exploration of gender expression in our child care settings. Early childhood education and care works best when it is linked to the real issues of people’s lives. The most important thing that we can do is to ensure that all children in our care and their families feel a strong sense of belonging and acceptance for who and what they are.
