Event Details

Cultivating Community and Fostering Independence in Early Childhood

For ECE teachers and childcare professionals working with children 0-6 years, preschool and childcare administrators, and counselors.

How can we encourage children to build a strong sense of self and empathy for others within their community? We will explore essential foundations and practical tools anchored in the latest brain science research, trauma and attachment theory, and social emotional learning practices.

Woven throughout the workshop we will explore the impact of power and inequities and ways to move towards more anti-racist practices for our youngest learners.

We will explore how to:

Understand behavior as communication so we can support young children building socially helpful ways to communicate.
Strengthen our own self-regulation and co-regulation skills to create safe classroom environments.
Apply a trauma-responsive and equity-focused lens so that we can better support our early learners.
Build children’s capacity for independence and agency and lay foundations to build compassion and empathy.

Gain new ideas to help early learners:
Regulate their bodies and brains | Build emotional and feelings vocabulary | Connect with peers and caregivers | Begin to problem solve independently | Grow age-appropriate communication skills
