In this module, we focus on how educators can help very young children to learn how to understand, name and manage their emotions, and to begin self-regulating their own behaviour. This work builds on solid relationships between children and educators, and helps children to build strong foundations for learning and communication throughout their lives.
The module will provide you with an understanding of:
- what self-regulation is
- the importance of supporting children to self-regulate their emotions and behaviour
- tips for building self-regulation in children, and
- the role of the educator in supporting self-regulation.
Suitable for early childhood education and care workers at all stages of their careers and particularly for educators working with children aged from birth to 3 years. This module will take an estimated one hour to complete.
