Racism sensitivity in kindergarten

This day is for kindergarten specialists: Prof. Stephan Bundschuh will present research results on “Racism sensitivity in day care centers” on 18 November 2019 in the University of Applied Sciences in Koblenz.

Exclusion phenomena such as racism and related group-related hostility phenomena do not stop at daycare centres. Rhineland-Palatinate is no exception. We would like to discuss the resulting challenges on the basis of a current study on racism sensitivity in day care centers in Rhineland-Palatinate.

The following questions will be discussed at the symposium:

  • What about racism and related group-related phenomena of misanthropy in kindergartens in Rhineland-Palatinate?
  • How can such attitudes and actions be countered?
  • How can specialists act professionally in this respect?
  • What exactly can and should be done against this in the day care centre?
  • What materials are available to strengthen and sensitise children?
  • How can professionals and parents work together to combat this?
  • What is the role of the responsible bodies and other responsible persons?

Lectures, workshops and a panel discussion will give a voice to many-voiced perspectives on how daycare centres can develop into non-discriminatory spaces in order to offer all children good conditions for development.
