Abstract

Gender stereotypes prevailingly perpetuate in parents’ and practitioners’ interactions with young children in the early years. Whilst the majority of practitioners recognise the harm gender stereotypes cause to children, many have received limited training on challenging gender stereotypes either during their initial training or in their continuous professional development (The Fawcett Society, 2020). This article draws on my recent research to support early years practitioners and teachers in understanding and challenging gender stereotypes from cross-cultural perspectives (Xu, 2020a, 2020b). Here I consider why and how gender matters in early years education and care (EYEC); and examine gender-sensitive practices in EYEC.
