PACCA's Social Justice Book Club Series

Want to be a part of an incredibly important conversation while reading a highly informative publication and interacting/networking with other early childhood and school age professionals across the commonwealth?
 
Join us for this unique experience exploring the 2022 publication, Child Care Justice; Transforming the System of Care for Young Children. This powerful resource forces providers and educators to explore their pre-conceived notions about the way we operate programs for children. "Join the authors of this book in starting a movement of hope and possibility for an antiracist child care and early childhood education system." 
 
Each week, explore and discuss a chapter of the book, which is part of the teaching social justice series, challenging us all to be better and do better in our work with young children, their families and each other.
