Raising Awareness of Same Sex Families Project

13 March 2012 - 20 March 2012, 3:22 PM

We are two Early Childhood Care & Education students in our final year of a degree programme at I.T. Sligo.

The aim of our project is to provide a curriculum resource that can be used by Early Years practitioners and Junior and Senior infants teachers to raise awareness of same sex families. We are hoping to make a short DVD, which is aimed at children from 3 - 6 years old.

In order to further develop our project idea we would like to consult with somebody who has experience of growing up in a same sex family and a professional who has experience of working in the area of same sex families.

As we are based in the North West it would be helpful if you could recommend anyone in this area. Alternatively, we would be happy to conduct a conversation via telephone, email or skype.
