From Conflict to Connection

PD 0-3 Years: From Conflict to Connection: Communicating to Build Emotional Resilience with Tamariki and Families

This is a workshop that is designed for both parents and teachers – for anyone that would like to fuel a connection with tamariki.

Supportive relationships are the foundation of emotional wellbeing and trust, which ultimately contribute to learning and growth. During this workshop we will consider practical ways to support the development of emotional resilience in the child. We will explore how to support parents in the early years. 

Beginning with a simple yet powerful study of brain science, I will describe current best practices to support children and families with challenging behaviour.  This workshop aligns with Dr. Montessori’s stated penultimate aim for education: for peace.

Facilitator: Leena Savolainen

Leena Savolainen has been part of the ISMS community since 2003 when her eldest daughter began preschool. Over the years her enthusiasm for the Montessori approach to education has grown as she has witnessed the benefits for her own children and countless other families.

Leena was inspired to become an AMI trained 0 – 3 educator as she believes that the relationships and experiences in early childhood lay the foundation for the adult we become.

She has a background in counselling, public health, adult education, biology, and science communication. She has worked in educational settings in a variety of contexts for over 25 years. Leena is passionate about her role in supporting parents and their children in Montessori environments. In addition to her formal training, Leena is a mother of four children: two daughters and two sons from 9 to 20 years of age.
