About AMAZE
AMAZE early childhood  delivers practical, classroom tools, and staff development helping adults engage children (PreK and K) in respectful, meaningful discussions around differences and bias. Bias is a major driver for bullying, and research shows that children begin experimenting with bias and bullying in the preschool years. Discussing bias can be daunting for adults, and tools and training to lead these discussions have been lacking. AMAZE delivers a complete program providing tools, training, and support to lead respectful, meaningful discussions and activities that address bias as it develops.
AMAZE early childhood  uses high quality children’s literature, open ended questions, and a myriad of classroom activities to explore human differences. It sensitively covers themes of race/ethnicity, socioeconomics, aging, adoption, immigration, gay and lesbian family members, divorce/break-ups, religion, disability, and bullying in a way that young children learn about the world. Divided into four sections: Safety and Belonging, Understanding You/Understanding Me, Valuing Families, and Building Communities; this program builds vocabulary and skills needed for successful transition to elementary school.
