Educational sites across Australia are working every day to figure out how to bring together learning and wellbeing in a meaningful way for their children and young people. Educators are passionate about helping the next generation reach their potential, knowing that every child has inherent value and worth. More than ever, educators are having to manage a complex array of needs, behaviours and stories from a wide range of children and families.
Human beings are wired for connection, from before they even enter this world. This inbuilt need drives children to find significant and secure adults who can help guide and coach them through their early years of development, into their schooling life, and into adulthood. It’s here that we develop our capacity to connect socially, to make friends, to problem solve, and to regulate our emotions. It’s here that we grow our capacity to learn and build our toolbox of strategies and tools to help us navigate the ups and downs of everyday life. Our stories have a significant impact on our development, and if unsafe can rewire our brains for protection rather than connection. If protection is the number one concern for a child, learning, connecting and self-regulation look different, and in fact, may not happen at all. Children who live in a constant state of protection, need repeated experiences of unconditional safety, care and additional supports to move them back to a place of connection over time. Healing is possible.
So, with all these stories and more in our classrooms and sites every day, how do we best support the developmental needs of all children?
This workshop will dive deeply into the most recent evidence and understanding of the developmental needs of children through the lens of neuroscience, neurobiology and psychology. It will take a look at how the brain develops, how it is wired for connection, and how our stories influence that development, and how best to support children in our environments. Looking through this lens, it will explore how best to support the social, emotional and learning needs of children, how to implement discipline frameworks that meet the needs of both children and adults, including practical strategies to respond and help a child manage challenging behaviours. We’ll consider practical ways to help coach a child in the development of self-regulation. It will explore how to create a new kind of framework across a whole site to meet the developmental needs of all children. It will be an interactive conversation, providing educators with many practical strategies to take home and implement the very next day.
