Feisty Roosters and Quiet Lambs – a Professional Seminar for ECEs (Busselton WA)

July 29, 9:30 am - 11:30 am

The first seven years are so important in shaping the future wellbeing of children. It’s when the foundations are laid for later learning and healthy development, including life-long physical, social, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual growth.
As an Early Childhood Educator, you play such a significant role in society and in this window of time. It’s important that you have access to quality professional development and tools to help support you in your growth and in your role.
To be an educator means understanding WHO each child is. You’re here to inspire, to encourage, and to promote children’s learning while nurturing children’s sense of belonging and becoming.
We’re all born with a particular temperament or tendency towards a particular demeanour and this can be seen as a kind of continuum. At one end we have our confident, feisty ‘roosters’, and at the other end we have our quiet, empathetic ‘lambs’. There are also other influences like extroversion, introversion and the dandelion/orchid dispositions described by Bruce Ellis and Thomas Boyce.
In this seminar, parenting author Maggie Dent explores not only her concept of the ‘rooster and lamb continuum’ but other influences that can challenge you as an educator of young children. Maggie unpacks how better understanding our children’s temperament can guide us in our relationship with them.

Tickets: $35

Time: 9.30am-11.30am (doors open at 8.45am)
