Day 1

Examine how the child under three learns to communicate and develop language. This will encompass how the adult can support the development by preparing themselves, and the environment, and examine how language influences the way a child develops emotional regulation, executive function and cognitive skills.

Day 2

Explore three of the fundamental areas of development in the child under three; movement, self-discipline and independence. By having an in depth understanding of each area, kaiako will be in a greater position to convey this knowledge to families to enrich their parenting experience.

This will be an interactive workshop so be prepared to share and learn with your colleagues.
