Being an Early Childhood Educator can be a very stressful job and with all the policies, procedures, regulations and licensing requirements it is no wonder that we all sometimes make mistakes. If our own mistakes are seen as areas for personal growth rather than a circumstance to shame and blame, we can easily teach the children we care for by ‘doing’ and role modelling positive behavior between ourselves and our coworkers. The aim of this workshop is to get you thinking about your own personal development and how this significantly aids your ability to teach children these valuable life lessons.
Investigate our assumptions of perfection.
Explore the question: Do we always need to be “right”?
Discuss how avoiding blame or responsibility restricts your creativity and progress.
Find strategies to help turn mistakes in to valuable learning opportunities.
