The million-dollar question: How does one guide children’s behaviour towards continued success? The answer can be captured in one word: Context. With a greater understanding of each child’s life context comes greater potential to guide behaviours towards positive outcomes. By combining a common pedagogical framework with a care and learning community that is able to work collaboratively across stakeholder groups, the tools to guide children and families through an array of expected and unexpected behaviours will emerge. In this workshop, participants will learn practical theories and best practice strategies that will enhance the participant’s ability to build rich context-based relationships with children in school age care and their families. Connections that are grounded in the Image of the Child and the Four Domains as put forward in the British Columbia Early Learning Framework.
