In-Person Training: What About Me? LGBTQIA Culturally Competent Practices for Early Childhood Classrooms   

As early education professionals, in all settings from Family Child Care to Head Start, we are in a unique position to welcome, embrace, and empower LGBTQIA families in a way that supports children and families alike.

Join us for a candid discussion about our role as educators in supporting all families. We will discuss the power of creating a culture of explicit welcome where all children and adults see themselves and their loved ones as valued members of the community. You will leave with specific and easy-to-use strategies for building cultural competence within your own classroom, school, and community.

PIZZA NIGHT: We will be serving PIZZA ahead of the training so come a bit early and enjoy a bite to eat.

*Directors* – You can attend ANY training for free if one or more of your staff attends the same training. Contact us at training@buncombepfc.org or 828.407.2058 for more information! FAQs Is my registration transferable? Things happen! If for some reason you are unable to attend this training after you have registered, you may send someone in your place! Just be sure to let us know (training@buncombepfc.org).

What is the refund policy? Unfortunately, we do not offer refunds for trainings, unless Buncombe Partnership for Children cancels the event. Instead, we do offer ‘credits’ that can be applied to future trainings you wish to attend. To receive credits for future training you must cancel at least 24 hours in advance. You are responsible for contacting us should you wish you transfer your credit to another training.

Can I pay with cash or check? If your organization must pay by check, please contact us at 828.407.2058 or training@buncombepfc.org. All checks are due 72 hours in advance unless otherwise agreed upon. Unfortunately, we cannot accept cash. If you do not have a credit card or feel uncomfortable using a credit card online, consider asking a friend to register you and giving them cash.

I’m going to be running late. Can I still attend? Unfortunately, DCDEE rules do not allow for credit to be given to participants that miss more than 15 minutes of a training. The participant is welcome to still attend, but CHCs or CEUs cannot be given.

Thanks and we will see you then.
