It’s a great session that can enable whole teams to critically reflect on current behaviour strategies and identify key practices when supporting children’s behaviour.

Do You See What They See

2 PART WEBINAR SERIES

“The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of childhood into maturity.” – Thomas Henry Huxley

 

When we observe children, what is our purpose and what are we seeing? How often do we take the time to properly observe children’s play? Are we capturing the wonder and amazement that children experience through their play?

 

During this session, educators will have the opportunity to identify the lenses through which they view children. We will also discuss strategies to engage with children in a more meaningful and respectful teaching and learning process.

 

This session aims to inspire educators to reflect on their practice and find ways to highlight the understandings that children formulate about the world during play. Educators will explore how to use their observations to plan environments that form deeper connections to children’s exploration and discovery.

5 ways to better conversations with children

Great conversations make us feel good about ourselves and our place in the world, no matter how old we are. Orders, directions, and demands can make us feel resentful and annoyed. As educators in a sometimes stressful and time poor environment, we can unintentionally fall into a pattern of verbally directing and demanding when interacting with young children.

In this session, participants will explore 5 strategies to enhance their interactions and conversations with children. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss these strategies and reflect on their practices to enable them to finesse their communication strategies moving forward.
