Nurturing Children through Play
April 29 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
Creating Nurturing Environments – Day Two with Marie Richardson
Can we have effective learning without every child having a sense of being nurtured?
‘Children who’ve grown up without nurture may often lack any sense that they can be something other than what they are.’
Glasgow Centre for Population Health published a briefing paper in 2014 on Nurture Corners in Nurseries. Since then the need for Nurture has developed across Scotland to become a National Need for Nurture throughout services, not just a ‘corner’. Beginning with the six guiding principles set out in the ‘nurture approach’ offers solid foundations to create the best start to creating a nurture ethos.
This course will consider qualities to nurture including:
• Trust, patience, responsibility, empathy and self-reliance.
• Perceptual development.
• Emotional health.
• Expressing emotions.
• Mutual respect.
• Listening actively.
• Encouraging talents and strengths.
• Considering limitations.
• Fair and consistent discipline as teaching not punishment.
• Value apologies, co-operation, patience, forgiveness and co-operation of others.
There will, as always, be an active approach to the content with practical examples being explored and a variety of play-based ideas to promote nurture in every aspect of play.
Delegates can book both days of this course for £200 + VAT or each day as a stand alone for £120 + VAT.
