In this informative session presented by Dr Kaylene Henderson, we explore children’s needs within their relationships and interactions with us. In particular, you will learn ways to interact with children to promote a secure attachment style. While we know that a secure attachment style promotes best outcomes for children, how commonly does this occur? How can we better support children and also their parents in order to promote this? Finally, building on this foundation, we will look at other factors that influence children’s development and at how you can best teach and support children within ECEC settings to enhance their developmental outcomes.
