Positive learning outcomes through behaviour guidance

Parentshop’s training solutions make a real difference to the harmony and learning outcomes of early learning centres through behaviour guidance to reduce the effects of behavioural issues with children, staff and parents


Here are three powerful ways we support you to improve young children’s development and wellbeing.


We teach you how to manage behaviour issues

Early years educators are often first to identify a young person’s behavioural and emotional support needs. They are integral in supporting parents to understand and address them. We teach you how to build children’s capacity to respond to everyday challenges and unexpected events by developing their capacity to understand, self-regulate and manage their emotions in ways that reflect the feelings and needs of others. Research shows that young people who can control their impulses do better in academic and social situations. School staff and parents can easily learn to coach them in this.
