The children in our care deserve the best beginning in life we can give them. Recent brain research shows that warm, caring relationships between adults and young children are THE foundation for children’s healthy development. Strong, secure relationships benefit children’s social, emotional, cognitive and physical development, their achievement in school, and even their lifelong physical health. As caregivers and teachers, we can have a huge impact on children’s lives both now and later, especially for those children who may be experiencing toxic stress.
Attend this training to learn how to create and maintain secure attachment relationships with infants, toddlers and young children. Discover how to determine whether your relationships are going well, what your role as a sensitive and responsive teacher should be, and the importance of your program providing relationship-based care. You will come away with many ideas for strengthening your relationships, including interaction strategies and connecting activities that are enjoyable for you and your children!
