Outline

Age range taught: Pre-Kindy - Prep
Brain research tells us that secure positive relationships are crucial for young children's learning and development (Nagel 2012). But what do such relationships look like in an early childhood setting? Is it just about being 'friends' with everyone, or is there more to it? Are there other ways to view positive relationships beyond friendships and sharing? How might teachers and educators implement an overarching plan for relationships that guides strategies rather than reacting to situations as they arise? This workshop presents a framework to assist early childhood practitioners, across all settings, to reflect, and build on the practical ways in which they support positive relationships with, and between, young children. Links will be made with the QKLG and NQF.
