Course Description

For the last few decades, research and clinical practice have demonstrated and continue to provide evidence to advocate the importance of social and emotional development.  

In this webinar, we will focus on understanding the important role played by secure relationships with Early Childhood Educators and other caregivers. Benefits include increased ability to co- and self-regulate, opportunity for modelling of positive interaction skills and, of course, a sense of security and well-being that allows children to explore and learn.

To us, this is the curriculum for early years settings!
