We used to think that infants and young children were the most resilient group. Now research says that they are in fact the most vulnerable. Early experiences shape the architecture of the brain and lay foundations for healthy social/emotional development. Young children process emotional experiences in ways that are very different from older children and adults. Caregivers, including ECE teachers, play a crucial role in helping children develop skills for managing feelings and coping with stress. This workshop will discuss the emotional well-being of young children in the context of childcare programs and their relationships with ECE teachers. Community resources and strategies for working with parents will be presented.
Suitable for all early learning professionals and parents.
