What is NdCAD’s Professional Development Training for Teachers 
& Early Childhood Educators?

NdCAD’s professional development training program is designed to help educators and program providers expand their thinking about how they work with diverse children and families and how to integrate culturally-responsive approaches, practices, and curricula into the learning environment.

More Than Diversity Training
It is critical that adults who work with children and families receive appropriate training, support, and resources to help them fulfill their commitment to provide
safe, nurturing, and high quality services.

Educators are better prepared to nurture and educate children when they recognize and value the important role that culture plays in the education and socialization of children. Furthermore, they must be equipped with knowledge, tools, and strategies for working with ethnically diverse children as well as ways to incorporate multicultural education into curricula.

Topics Covered:
– 
School, family, and community partnerships

– Educational roles of parents, schools and communities

– Cultural identity and academic achievement
– Forming and affirming cultural identity
