This webinar is the first in a two-part series.
Children develop in the context of millions of interactions with their environments, caregivers, and communities. When we focus on what equitable ideal learning environments look like in practice, we find key principles that can come to life in any setting, including home, family- and center-based child care, and school. These principles begin with a fundamental commitment to equity and align closely with developmental, neuroscience, and implementation research.
The panel features three researchers who will highlight how we can translate these key principles into practice for all children.
