What will I learn?

Regulatory bodies expect nurseries to have high expectations for children’s behaviour, attitudes and personal development. 

This course will provide a range of strategies to support positive behaviour. The training will help you to understand the reasons and triggers for behaviours that challenge, such as not sharing, biting and using inappropriate language. You will learn how to create a positive behaviour environment and the strategies to use to effectively respond to common behaviours. The course also covers self-regulation, executive function and the importance of parental partnerships. 

Key topics:

  • The expectations of the statutory guidance and regulatory bodies
  • The impact of self-regulation, executive function and empathy in relation to behaviour
  • Using focussed observation, analyse the cause of some behaviours that challenge
  • Creating positive behaviour environments, including differentiation and staff approaches
  • Strategies to support positive behaviour 
  • Conflict resolution and saying “Sorry.”
  • The importance of strong parental partnerships.

“NDNA’s positive behaviour in early years training was brilliant and delivered by an excellent trainer, who was very interesting, knowledgeable, and engaging. The trainer was enthusiastic and his passion for this topic kept staff engaged throughout the whole day. We left with many new ideas that could be implemented in our practice.”
