Learning to self-regulate emotions and actions (children 2-6 years)

February 26 @ 6:15 pm - 8:00 pm


 An interactive workshop on ways to guide children to greater self-regulation.

Since self-regulation is central to lifelong success as a learner, how can we help children in early childhood settings to learn to self-regulate? One way is by engaging with children in restorative justice practices. Restorative practices are about creating trusting relationships, using fair processes and involving children actively in repairing problems when conflict arises.

These practices don’t exist in a vacuum, they are part of a carefully crafted culture in the early years which results in the shared belief: ‘we can work this out together’.

 Learning Goals:

  • Unpacking the challenges relating to social conflict between young children
  • Understanding how children learn to self-regulate
  • Learning practical strategies to establish or maintain restorative justice practices
  • Finding ways to develop a culture of ‘we can work this out’

 AITSL standards addressed in this workshop:
