This workshop will build on the Educators' ability to support children in developing self-regulation skills from a position of co-regulation. ROCK Facilitators will discuss self-regulation vs self-control, while addressing the importance of building relationships. As a group, Educators will develop a ‘toolbox’ of strategies to take away. Discussions will reflect on how the information presented may support and/ or enhance present programming and Educator-Child relationships.

"Curriculum can emerge from outdoor play experiences in wondrous and authentic ways. The changing seasons offer invitations for learning that cannot be duplicated indoors. Curriculum can and should emerge from nature. It is in nature that children’s interests will be piqued".
-Diane Kashin
Brrrr, its cold outside so let's get outdoors and see what this season has to offer! This interactive session will explore ideas and resources that you can implement using materials that nature provides at no cost.
Through discussion we will look at ways to get outside even on those not so sunny days and the benefits of being outdoors in any weather.
