Self-regulation in the early years gives children a foundation for them to develop and grow with positive attitudes, improved social skills and better skills in learning.
Self-regulation brings together nature and nurture. A child’s biology and their experiences are important to their development, and their ability to self regulate is shown to play a bigger role in a child’s future school success. The ability to regulate emotions and arousal is the foundation of self-control. Support for learning self-regulation is important; one does not naturally learn to self regulate as they grow older.
Facilitators will lead participants in the discussion to guide them to understand the need for self-regulations and to develop activities and tools which promote self-regulation in young children.
