Security and Safety within Groups of School-age Children part 1

Importance of Relationships with Educators | taught by Jan Blaxall, MASc, RECE, AECEO.C

Course description

For the last few decades, research and clinical practice have demonstrated and continue to provide evidence to advocate the importance of social and emotional development.  

In this webinar, we will focus on understanding the important role that continues to be played by supportive relationships with Educators. School aged-children take many of their cues about ways to interact and relate to others from educators, including assessing the worth of their peers.  Group settings that expect and model caring and respect from all participants create environments that encourage participation, risk-taking and enjoyment of social engagement.
