- Programming in School Age Care
9 September 2021
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: With a greater understanding of each child’s life context comes greater potential to guide behaviours towards positive outcomes. The tools to guide children through an array of unexpected behaviours are developed within a common pedagogical framework and a care-and-learning community that is able to work collaboratively across stakeholder groups. In this workshop, we will explore practical strategies that will enhance the participants ability to build rich, context-based relationships with children and families.
