A recent Linden Learning Early Years Foundation Stage commissioned course.
Throughout EYFS, children are at the very beginning of their journey of learning about behaviour. The way we behave is primarily a means of communicating our emotions. Early brain development and emerging awareness such as the development of ‘theory of mind’ understanding transforms children’s view of themselves and others. All in all, early years is a period of rapid progress that impacts on each child’s behaviour in varying ways.
Underpinning effective EYFS practice is the ability of practitioners to see situations from the perspective of the child given their developmental progress and current understanding.
Our courses can be devised to meet your specific context but would typically include:
- Early brain development
- Behavioural learning from attachment to peer relationships
- Key aspects of emerging awareness such as theory of mind, identity, moral awareness
- Approaches to conflict resolution
- Dealing with the perennials of ‘saying sorry’, being friends, and hurting behaviours
- Ensuring coherent approaches in our setting to support positive behavioural learning
