What’s it about?
This learning activity will focus on general behavioural issues and dealing with these for educators who work with children aged 5-12 years, and issues they face in dealing with children with higher level behaviours. We will look at strategies that fit in with the current MTOP, as well as develop strategies that can help in the day to day work with young people.
The key focus is that Early Years learning children are faced with a unique opportunity to engage in positive activities and interactions. This can assist children to learn better ways to engage and participate in curricula and other activities.
