What to do when it feels like a zoo! Behaviour management by heart!

During this interactive on-line workshop, we will investigate the underlying roots of some of the most common negative behaviors we see in our centres and classrooms today. Together we will explore the means to address the triggers, and discover how to replace frustration with effective, compassionate, and supportive management skills that will promote and maintain a safe, peaceful, and productive place to learn and play. Through engaging activities, demos, and discussions, you will acquire an array of practical strategies that can prevent or defuse disruptive behaviors, while bringing a loving sense of joy, productivity, respect, and calm into your program.

Presenter: As an educator for both the school and public health systems, Simmy Zaret feels privileged tohave worked with, taught, counselled, and supported children with special needs and their families over 30 years. Through an array of workshops and speaking engagements, she is delighted to now bring her extensive experience to teachers, ECEs, administrators, parents, and healthcare professionals across the country. Simmy is currently working on a book which will encapsulate her training workshops and provide practical, well-honed strategies for promoting success for children of all ages. Besides Simmy’s active teaching and consulting career, she enjoys a busy family life in Toronto Ontario, where she is a well-known local storyteller, avid painter, and the proud mom of two wonderful young men.
