Gender Inclusion for Early Childhood Services


The Gender Expansion
The Gender Expansion is an interactive and reflective team workshop for early childhood services that will broaden participants understandings of gender. Through early childhood pedagogy, participants will gain practical skills to support all children’s wellbeing through practices that improve gender equality and gender diversity outcomes. One on one coaching for teachers is also available.
The program is comprised of two parts; Belief and Pedagogy. Belief is of a general nature; Pedagogy is specific to early childhood education. The programs include:
Belief – 3 hours
  • Unpacking current beliefs of gender and how these influence practice
  • An exploration of the different perspectives of gender throughout history, across cultures and the natural world
  • Separating sex and the different spectrums of gender
  • Learning to identify and disrupt gender stereotypes in practice and play
  • Gender diversity and its relevance to early childhood education
Pedagogy – 3 hours
  • Forms of gender education and how to recognise and make changes to practice
  • Gender through an Anti-Bias Lens
  • Working with families and managing differences of opinion
  • Practical steps for creating safe spaces to support the gender development of all children
  • A guest speaker speaking from personal experience of gender diversity in early childhood
