Successful School Year Part 1 – Proactive Approach: Prepare, Plan and Predict

Wednesday August 1, 2018       Time 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm       2 hours 

Fee: $35.00       FCC Fee: $20.00 (Promo Code)                                                                              

With the upcoming school year approaching, it’s time to prepare, plan and predict for a successful experience for everyone involved. Learn ways on how to use a specific method to communicate and connect with children, to let them know what the expectations are which includes both intellectual and emotional developmental needs. We will cover areas of insecurity, anxiety, defiance, aggression and power struggles.

Note: This is a stand–alone workshop. To get a more well–rounded understanding on this topic, you may be interested in registering separately for “Successful School Year Part 2 – Reactive Approach: Know, Act and Maintain” coming up on Wednesday October 3, 2018 but it is not required.


  • Clarify purpose and intention for the upcoming school year.
  • Understand and determine where potential pitfalls are and solutions for them.
  • Explore how to discuss expectations and boundaries.
  • Discuss how to approach misbehaviour.

*Suitable for parents, novice, intermediate and experienced early learning child care professionals working with children of any age.
