Description: This workshop is an open conversation about the reality of preschool expulsion and the factors behind why it happens. The purpose is to provide Early Childhood Educators with techniques and strategies to work with children who have been asked to leave programs previously or children who may demonstrate challenging behaviour. We will use real life strategies from a mindfulness based preschool curriculum that balances emergent, project-based activities and structure.
The objectives of this session include:
To have a basic understanding on the how’s and why’s of preschool expulsion (in a comfortable destigmatized way).
To gain practical, useful mindfulness strategies to use in the classroom.
To critically assess the use of time and structure in the classroom.
To feel seen and valued as an ECE working with children who may be exhibiting challenging behaviour.
