ECE 5: Positive Guidance and Discipline for the Young Child | ECED.X305


Participants in this course learn to identify children's behavior to determine whether it is normal, developmentally appropriate or problematic. Cooperative discipline is explored in the wider context of classroom management, working with staff and parents. Behaviors are examined to better understand why children behave the way they do and to correct behaviors with a guidance and discipline strategy that is positive, respectful of both child and adult, and developmentally appropriate. Participants also learn to practice prevention of certain behaviors and guide children through the use of positive discipline. The focus is on how an adult can behave when a difficult situation arises and be as effective as possible in creating an atmosphere of safety that supports all children in reaching their fullest potential.
