Social and emotional learning is essential to every child’s education to help children achieve their academic potential, build strong relationships and lead healthy and successful lives.
'Settling in Softy' will support Educators to focus on the important role of supporting children’s emotional well-being through a curriculum of care - for example, when joining the pre-school setting for the first time. This practical e-CPD programme is a must for all educators to ensure children’s emotional well-being is front and centre during the early months away from home and family. The interdependent nature of educator well-being and the ability to support children is also explored.
The Resource Documents section contains printable handouts to support the programme content and a Certificate of Participation is saved to the educator profile on completion.
