ABOLITIONIST TEACHING IN THE EARLY YEARS: A WOKE KINDERGARTEN WEBINAR

The AECEO and the Toronto Community for Better Child Care (TCBCC) are excited to be partnering to offer this workshop, presented by Akiea “Ki” Gross from  Woke Kindergarten.

In this workshop, Ki illuminates the ways the prison industrial complex manifests in early childhood and takes participants on an exploration of how we can disrupt the PIC through a comprehensive and interactive journey into Woke Kindergarten’s abolitionist early learning pedagogy. Participants can expect to leave with an introductory understanding of abolitionist teaching in practice, how to use Woke Kindergarten’s resources as healing-centered engagement in practice and a more thorough understanding of abolitionist politic, the pursuit of liberation and ultimately what that means—and how we show up—for our very youngest Black and brown children and their families. This workshop uses an interactive guide.
