Understanding & Supporting Toddler Behavior - Ali Porteous

About this event

By Ali Porteous, Childspace, New Zealand

Toddlers are all things wonderful; busy, tenacious, energetic, active, curious, impulsive, joyful and so much more! Toddlerhood can be a frustrating time for both children and the adults who care for them. Given labels such as the ‘terrible twos’, this is certainly a time of rapid growth for children physically, cognitively and socially. So how do we deal with the inevitable undesirable behaviours that arise when we group toddlers together?

This presentation will give you the opportunity to understand the neuroscience behind children’s behaviour and how to practically deal with conflict in a way that both uplifts and supports children, allowing them to empathise with others and foster positive peer interactions.

This webinar describes and discusses different learning stories that show and explain how teachers in specific inquiry groups created, shared, and commented on learning stories that promote access to equitable learning environments and outcomes.
