Early childhood education and care

About this event

We’ve all heard about the "terrible twos" being one of the most challenging times in a child's development. However, before a child reaches even that early stage a lot of brain development has already taken place. This starts in the womb, and is affected by a number of factors from then on.

This course provides an understanding of early brain development, what may bring out challenging behaviours, and ways to manage and engage therapeutically with our youngest children.

Key learning:

  • Through completion of this course you will:
  • Learn about brain development pre-birth, post-birth and throughout infancy
  • Understanding of the impact of unregulated stress on children
  • Understand how children self-regulate emotional states and what may impede this
  • Gain tools and techniques to effectively deal with behaviours which challenge you

Who should attend

The workshop is appropriate for those working in a wide variety of settings across both the statutory and voluntary sectors. It will be of particular relevance to those working in early years settings and for those working with parents as well as children.
