All children require nurturing, inclusive environments to develop and grow.

The training package explores strategies to assess and prevent challenging behaviours from occurring, as well as group and intensive individualized support strategies. This workshop requires attendees to reflect on current practices  and commitment to change approaches,  participate in group work and to attend both days.  Please bring a picture of the child care program setting layout and a bagged lunch. This workshop is for Child Care Providers who work in a home setting (RLNR, LFC, Multi-Age) as well as facility based programs.
