Behaviour Rethink for Educators: eLearning course

Behaviour rethink image

One test of the correctness of educational procedure is the happiness of the child.” Maria Montessori
"Nothing without joy." Loris Malaguzzi

Seeing children flourish is your passion, that's why you're an Early Childhood Educator. But what happens when you feel like you're spending most of your time "managing children's behaviour", and it's not working that great? There's not enough joy for you or the children. 
We've created this eLearning course for educators like you, that want to be and give your best.

Behaviour Rethink brings fresh understanding and tools, that you can start using straight away, to stop the cycle of 'fire fighting' behaviour. We guide you to build children's wellbeing (and you'll gain fresh purpose and enjoyment in your role).

Positive steps to support children and bring back more joy is on its way! Access this course within 24 hours of registering, and revisit our guidance as much as you like over a period of three months.



Behaviour Rethink guides and inspires educators to: 

PART 1: Understand behaviour 
- Reflect on your current practice and learn to identify children's needs, based on Maslow's hierarchy of needs and the Phoenix Cups framework ©.
- Identify the empty Connection/Love, Safety/Survival, Mastery/Control, Freedom and Fun Cups © of children in your care; and consider 'Cup filling' strategies to top up their wellbeing.
- Reflect on your 'image of the child', and the opportunities for children to engage in self-directed, active play.

PART 2: Review your approach and curriculum for influences on behaviour

- Discover how reinforcement of behaviour works, and the part you play in reinforcing behaviour!
- Check your approach to praise and encouragement, so that children become internally motivated.
- Provide children 'real, win-win' choices, and be aware of 'power/control' choices.
- Reflect on what's happening in your curriculum to create stress/frustration for children, and consider child-focused routines/practices.

PART 3: Support self-regulation
- Explore the impact of your language, interactions and relationships on children's emotional development.
- Identify simple, positive and consistent expectations/agreements for behaviour.
- Connect with how to respond to children's big emotions and support their resilience and self-regulation.

PART 4: Bring it all together with a plan
We introduce you to Hayden, he's here to guide us in better understanding a child, their behaviour, and in reflecting, planning, and reviewing what we do. 
- Consider children's temperament, family and culture, interests, abilities: and use the Phoenix Cups framework © to consider Hayden's needs. 
- Use the provided templates to monitor patterns surrounding the behaviour, consider the variables that may impact behaviour
- Collaborate to plan shared strategies, then implement and review them.
