Racism can present itself in different ways in a young child’s life. A child may have direct or indirect experiences of racism, but the impact can be felt all the same. Our new early years resource has been written by Dr Pamela Hamilton and Dr Bisi Showunmi, two Child Psychologists. Both have delivered anti-racism sessions for schools and local authorities, with the second author writing her thesis on race and identity development in school children.
This booklet introduces the idea of racial socialisation and how it supports child development. It identifies some ways to facilitate your journey in supporting racial socialisation in an early years setting.
