Zero Tolerance Work on prevention within Early Years Sector
It is never too early to question what is seen as ‘normal’ or what is traditionally expected of boys and girls in our society. Indeed doing so from a very young age helps to protect children from the negative consequences of inequality and discrimination as they grow into adults. Zero Tolerance is seeking to mainstream gender equality through all early learning and childcare provision in Scotland including introducing the topic to pre-qualification practitioner training.
Alongside partners in the early years workforce we have undertaken a number of activities designed to bring about change in this area with the aim that gender equality is promoted from birth.
