CENTRE RESOURCES

Expert-developed resources for challenging times

In times of need, it’s helpful to have expert resources on hand, to guide your educators and support your families.

Dr Kaylene Henderson has developed two unique resource packs for early learning centre teams, on the following topics:

Pack 1: Responding to Critical Incidents in ECEC Centres: Resources to Support Educators, Children and Families

This highly sought-after pack has been developed by Dr Kaylene Henderson for the immediate support and guidance of your educators and families following a critical incident or accident in your centre.

Upon sign-up, you will gain access to two short, practically-focused videos:

Responding to critical incidents in your centre: An educator’s guide to conversations with children and their families (13 minute video)

The first of these is to be watched by your educators. This video provides practical guidance in speaking with and supporting both children and parents in the challenging hours and days following a critical incident.


Responding to incidents and accidents: A short guide for parents and carers (6 minute video)

The second, shorter video has been developed for your parent community. The focus of this video is to guide parents in speaking with and supporting their children following an incident. You are welcome to share this via email among your families in order to provide a shared, contained approach for children.

In addition to these videos, you will gain access to:

  • Email templates for your educator team and parent community
  • Printable tip sheets for educators
  • Printable tip sheets for parents
  • Ongoing access to these invaluable video and printable resources

When: Register now and receive immediate access to your videos and printable resources.
Cost: One off cost per centre: $149

Pack 2: Supporting Children Through Relationship Disruptions, Grief and Loss, and Natural Disasters

This pack includes short, practically-focused videos for educators covering three important topics and can be viewed separately, as needed:

  • Supporting children’s emotions through relationship disruptions (including those caused by current staffing challenges) (7.5 minute video)
  • Talking to children about grief and loss (6.5 minute video)
  • Talking to children about natural disasters (6.5 minute video)

  • Printable tip sheets for parents on each of the above topics
  • Activity and picture book suggestions for use in your centre on the topics of grief/bereavement and natural disasters
  • Recommended resources (including weblinks and organisational support) for children and families

In times of need, it’s helpful to have these resources on hand so that you are ready and able to guide your educator teams and parent communities (and in doing so, ultimately support the children for whom you all care).
