This workshop will help participants discover new ideas to help children at their centres make and keep friendships. Participants will gain information on effective strategies to encourage positive behaviours amongst children and look at the ways friendships help children’s overall development. Participants will also be given a couple of effective friendship-related resource tools to use in their centres. Come and enjoy learning about the theory behind transitions and ways to make friendships and ‘friend’ behaviours for children easier.
