Positive Guidance in School Age Care
Children need adults to teach, guide, and support them as they grow and learn. As childcare providers we play an important role in guiding children’s behavior in positive, supportive, and age-appropriate ways. During this workshop we will explore some of the factors that may influence a child’s behaviour, including developmental characteristics and the particular challenges of key transition periods such as Summer and September. We will then explore some theories and strategies that can help us enhance our ability to work with the child in ways that contribute to their growth and development in positive ways.
