Parents as Partners - Social and Emotional Learning in the Early Years
In the September Parents as Partners Series, we’ll focus on the aspects of a child’s learning journey.
Brought to you in partnership with Life With A Baby and EarlyON Child and Family Centre Thornhill.
Workshop Recommended for parents of children from birth to 6 years
Social and emotional development is influenced by both biology and experiences. It refers to a child’s emerging capacity to regulate and express a range of emotions; develop positive relationships with adults and children; and confidently explore their environment and learn. Responsive and nurturing caregivers are essential for social and emotional well-being. We will briefly explore the biology and experiences that impact early childhood mental health and the ways in which parents and caregivers promote learning. In collaboration with Jacquie Gill, Registered Early Childhood Educator/Inclusion Practitioner.
