Join Rose Gentilcore to explore how we can best support the development of self-regulation and well-being within our youngest children. Our early years settings and classrooms can be a source of mindful experiences that nurture our minds and hearts. Participants will look at how mindfulness can support The Kindergarten Program and How Does Learning Happen? This workshop will offer a variety of strategies to help cultivate kindness, empathy and acceptance of oneself and others. We will explore a variety of breathing exercises, participate in ‘brain break’ activities, and learn ways to calm our minds. The session will include a look at the mindful brain, self-regulation strategies, and mindful experiences. Participants will be given an opportunity to create a variety of tools and make-and-take a self-regulation toolkit. We will create mindful jars, calming balls, emotion rocks and breathing tools. Participants will be provided resources to help support the implementation of the strategies discussed. Join us as we learn together and share promising practices to help foster self-regulation and promote well-being in our youngest learners.
