Supporting Emotional Well-Being for Pre-school Children

Venue : Ashling Hotel Dublin | 8 Parkgate Street | Dublin | Ireland

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 Pre-school Children”. 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 pre-school children.

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.

9.00am – 9.30am: Registration with morning teas and coffees. Welcome address.

9.30am – 1.00pm: Master Class with Imelda Madigan

1.00pm – 1.45pm: Lunch in the Ashling Hotels’ Chesterfield Restaurant

Master Class with Imelda Madigan

“Supporting emotional and social development in young children especially in times of conflict.”

This seminar will look at the key elements of supporting young children’s emotional and social development. Strategies to support the child’s well-being through the use of conflict resolution strategies will be explored.

Learning Opportunity 1

"The importance of play/tuning into play/time to play" with Sandra Cully

Play is a fundamental element of all children’s learning and development. Planning that is informed by theoretical knowledge and observation of individual children is more likely to result in learning and development opportunities which meet children’s particular needs and interests. Close observation is the vehicle through which we come to understand and interpret children’s actions. In this workshop we will discuss the practitioner’s role in providing children with meaningful play experiences and fostering the development of meaningful relationships. We will look at ways that sensitivity tune into children’s interests, support the development of children’s funds of knowledge and promote the development of children’s autonomy.

Learning Opportunity 2

“Supporting children with sensory processing difficulties” with Patrick Hynes

This workshop will provide participants with:

  • An overview of sensory processing difficulties
  • Explain how sensory processing difficulties can impact children functionally
  • Provide practical strategies and activity ideas to help address sensory processing difficulties
