Adopted children in pre-school are comfortable with the fact that they’ve been adopted and are happy talking about their adoption. Schools should include books about adoption in their libraries and children should be supported as they share their adoption story.
Training for pre-school staff includes raising awareness about the child’s understanding of adoption, suggestions for supporting the child and ideas for projects. A comprehensive bibliography and suggestions for classroom resources are included in this training.
Past trainings have included:
Earth Place Pre-school
Temple Beth El Pre-school
Consortium of Pre-school Directors
Strengthening the well-being of families formed through adoption.
