Event Description:

Please Note: This event has been organised for Early Years providers, educators or childminders working in service under Dublin City Childcare Committees remit area only. If you work outside of our remit, please contact your local CCC for information on their training events. If you are not within our remit area, please call 01-8733696 to join the waiting list.

Dublin City Childcare Committee are pleased to host a behaviour management seminar “Supporting Emotional Well-being for Children aged 0-3 years”. This event has been organised to offer Early Years educators an opportunity to come together and learn more about the age group that they care for and work with, focusing on the emotional development of children 0-3 years.

Emotional development helps young children to express emotions and regulate appropriately, but this is not an easy task for our younger children who are just beginning to learn about their world and relationships. This can be a struggle, a struggle which can often lead to reactive responses from children and sometimes behaviour that can be challenging to re-direct in an early years environment. As Early Years educators we have an opportunity to guide children on their journey of self-regulation and help them to cope with these new, big emotions in an appropriate way. We hope that this seminar will give educators new knowledge, tools and skills to support children in this way.

All attendees will attend the Master Class and one afternoon workshop. A carvery lunch is included, and all ticket holders will be entered into our raffle which will be held on the day. A DCCC pack will also be given to each attendee.

Master Class with Imelda Madigan

“Supporting the child’s emotional and social development through the daily routine and conflict resolution strategies.”

Having a consistent, calm, respectful and caring routine is the essential step in supporting the child’s wellbeing. This seminar will look at the key elements of a consistent yet flexible daily routine for young children. We will discuss and explore ways to support the child to be strong psychologically and socially. Looking at the different segments of the routine from the child’s viewpoint will give us deep insight into how the child feels and sees their little world. Supportive interactions are a must to grow a positive view on life for each child.

Learning Opportunity 1

"Enabling Environments for Children 0-3years" with Siobhan O'Connell

This workshop will look at how the environment can impact on children’s behaviour. We will explore factors in the environment that contribute to challenging behaviour and look at ways to minimise this and support more peaceful interactions. In particular the workshop will focus on:
-Using the environment to support children’s sense of well
being
-Help reduce what we perceive as challenging behaviour
-Indoor & outdoor environment –Layout, Resources, Experiences
-Emotional environment – Relationships and Interactions
When an environment is truly enabling it creates favourable conditions for children’s growth, learning and development.

Learning Opportunity 2

Understanding emotional development and self-regulation” with Sharon Byrne

When we know more about emotional development and why children might be acting in ways that are problematic, it enables us to respond sensitively. If we can see children’s behaviour as communication, it is the first step to addressing what underlying needs are being communicated.
Sharon’s workshop will give educators a deeper understanding of emotional development and the importance of co-regulation. It will also look at attachment theory and its application in relation to early years provision.
