Guiding Behaviour in a Child Care Setting  (Kitsilano Neighbourhood House)

Saturday April 7, 2018       Time 10:30 am - 3:00 pm       4 hours 

Fee: $65.00      FCC Fee: $50.00 (Promo Code)                                                                                               

The million-dollar question: How does one guide children’s behaviour towards continued success? The answer can be captured in one word: Context. With a greater understanding of each child’s life context comes greater potential to guide behaviours towards positive outcomes. By combining a common pedagogical framework with care and a learning community that is able to work collaboratively across stakeholder groups, the tools to guide children and families through an array of expected and unexpected behaviours will emerge. In this workshop, participants will learn practical theories and best practice strategies that will enhance the participant’s ability to build rich context-based relationship with children and families, grounded in the image of the child and the four domains of BC’s Early Learning Framework: In putting forward an image of a capable child, full of potential, it is recognized that children differ in their strengths and capabilities, and that not all children have the same opportunities to develop their potential.


  • Learn practical theories and strategies that will enhance our ability to build rich context-based relationship with children and families.
  • Explore an image of the child based on BC’s Early Learning Framework.

*Suitable for parents, students, adult instructors/administrators, novice, intermediate and experienced early learning child care professionals working with preschool to school age children (3 thru 12), including children with extra support needs.
