It was roughly 18 months ago that Nick underwent a major life transition... now its Mike's turn. In part 1 of 2, Napcast co-hosts, Nick (he/him), and Mike (he/him), chats about the emotions that comes up when adults transitions to a new phase of their lives and lays the foundation for part 2 which will focus on what preschoolers may feel as they graduate and move onto Kindergarten.
Since meeting over 5 years ago at Hilltop Children's Center and Educator Institute in Seattle, WA (Coast Salish Territory), Nick Terrones (he/him) and Mike Browne (he/him) have been working towards a critical reimagination of ECE spaces for BIPOC educators and youth. In 2020, they teamed up to deliver a podcast titled Napcast, where they explore the intersection of early childhood education with race, identity, and culture. Now in new roles, Nick as the Program Director of Daybreak Star Preschool at United Indians of All Tribes, and Mike, Sr. Director of Community Engagement at Cultivate Learning, they combine their experience from their time in the classroom with their insights as ECE leaders in order to challenge your perspective on the ways we teach, play, and love society's youngest citizens.
