Men in ECE: “A Man for All Reasons”

Even in the midst of a global ECE staffing crisis, very few programs are recognizing that half the population is being unrecognized as a potential solution. At this WoFo Global Café, we discussed opportunities to address strategies to identify, recruit and retain quality male early childhood providers. We also explored what people have learned about the impact of a gender balanced staff on: outdoor play, nature play and male involvement. We challenged stereotypes and celebrated the caring nature of men. Facilitated by male ECE educators from England, Scotland, Wales, USA and Canada, members of the WF Working Group on Men in ECE.

People who commit their lives to young children and their families have powerful stories to tell and we can find our own hope and inspiration as we listen.  WoFo Global Café is the space where people gather to share their stories.  Stop by for tea and find affirmation and companionship.
