The Importance of Calmness, Silence and Stillness in Children's Lives

Registration: 12.30pm- 1.00pm
Session: 1.00pm - 3.00pm

Today's world is full of the immediacy of a busy life and it is impacting on children. This seminar explores the what, the why and most importantly the how of calming our children. You will learn about self-regulation, how to calm hyperactive children and all about stress in children's lives. You will discover the cognitive, social and emotional benefits of silence and stillness and how it will bring you immediate benefits in your centre and school. Maggie also explores building mindfulness in young children, which will help with their ability to interpret and interact more positively with their world. (Linked to EYLF Outcomes 1,2 & 3)

Maggie presents her message - based on evidence-based research - in a real, compassionate, often humorous and inspirational way that makes the learning truly memorable.
