Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News -

All of the ed­u­ca­tors at Gal­ston Early Learn­ing Cen­tre this month had the op­por­tu­nity to at­tend the first Unit­ing Care Chil­dren’s Ser­vices Con­fer­ence for 2016 at Brighton-Le- Sands.

The con­fer­ence fo­cused on guid­ing chal­leng­ing be­hav­iours, pos­i­tive psy­chol­ogy for chil­dren and work­ing through the chal­lenges in doc­u­ment­ing chil­dren’s learn­ing. All of th­ese pre­sen­ta­tions pro­vided in­no­va­tive ideas to over­come th­ese chal­lenges for ed­u­ca­tors, as well as pro­vide strate­gies and sug­ges­tions on how we, as early child­hood ed­u­ca­tors, can im­prove our prac­tices on a day to day ba­sis.

Af­ter the con­fer­ence, we re­flected on some of the key points. Th­ese in­cluded- fo­cus­ing on the broader per­spec­tive of chil­dren’s be­hav­iour by ob­serv­ing and record­ing trig­gers that lead to the be­hav­iour; how our emo­tions are con­ta­gious and drive our ca­pac­ity to think; the im­por­tance of find­ing the pos­i­tives in your ev­ery­day life to in­crease pro­duc­tiv­ity at the cen­tre.

We have a passionate team here at Gal­ston and we hope that the chil­dren who at­tend our ser­vice now and in fu­ture will ben­e­fit from our ed­u­ca­tor’s fur­ther devel­op­ing their skills and knowl­edge in early child­hood ed­u­ca­tion. Our team con­tin­u­ally strives to main­tain and im­prove our prac­tices to en­sure that the cen­tre pro­vides qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion and care for the chil­dren and fam­i­lies within our com­mu­nity.

If you would like to come and have a look at the cen­tre or ask any ques­tions re­gard­ing our Ed­u­ca­tional Pro­gram please feel free to con­tact the Cen­tre Di­rec­tor Daniela Balmer on 9653 1475.
