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. Our programs support Quality Areas and concepts of the National Quality Standard.

You can help your child make that adjustment by being a good listening ear and by helping them to get things in proportion.
