Fostering Resiliency in Young Children

No matter what a child may be struggling with, when attempts at talking through a problem do not work, using alternative approaches for connecting will often prove more helpful. This workshop explores creative ways of engaging and communicating with children (ages 3-12) and their natural support systems. Participants will learn practical skills based on the expressive arts (play, art, drama) and integrative body-based techniques (mindfulness, sensory, and whole-brain activities) that promote and build resilience in children. Informed by attachment theories, developmental psychology, family therapy, and neuroscience, this training uses a variety of experiential exercises, role-plays, and interactive activities to enhance participant learning.

Human Resources Update

A NEW session as part of our Better Business Practices Series

Employers including child care organizations are required under the Occupational Health and Safety Act to review their workplace violence and harassment programs with employees annually. Traditional methods of reviewing the policies and programs are often ineffective when it comes to delivering the right message when dealing with bullying,  harassment or inappropriate behaviours that are just under the radar.  Your employees need to know more than just the legal definitions of bullying and harassment, they need to understand how it is their joint responsibility to eliminate these behaviours from your workplace.

This interactive and informative session will use quizzes and case studies to help participants learn:
• How to create a stronger corporate culture and change the power dynamics of your team
• Empower your team with the skills to prevent bullying and harassment within your workplace
• Create a meaningful policy that ensures that staff know what to do if they are being harassed
• Develop a corporate culture that encourages bystanders to act when they observe bullying and/or harassing behaviours
• And other preventative measures

Self-Care Strategies for Leaders: How a Practice of Self-Care Can Enhance a Leader’s Performance and Impact Their Team

A NEW session as part of our Leadership Series

It is well known that leaders face constant demands every day; from budget issues to human resource issues, the list never ends. These demands create a huge amount of stress. In order for their teams to be successful, leaders must develop and integrate strategies of self-care. Leaders must lead by example. In this workshop, we will focus on the whole concept of self-care and leadership: how a practice of self-care can enhance a leader’s performance and impact on their team. We will explore: The dangers of stress and the importance of self-care for leaders; Traits of leaders with a self-care practice; Introduction to mindfulness;  The importance of focusing versus multi-tasking Mindful leadership and its connection to well being of individuals and performance of teams; Uncovering values and beliefs vs demands and commitments; Blending work and personal life Strategies for self-care.

Self-Intelligence – Supporting Children’s Self Esteem Building in the Early Years

A NEW session as part of our Workplace Wellness Series

In the early years, what matters most to the development of a child’s sense of self is whether or not the adults in their life embody a sense of their own selves. Lucky for us, Self-Intelligence has the capacity to develop over an entire lifespan, and we can support the development of our children’s self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-regulation skills as we nurture our own. Throughout the workshop, participants will explore three facets of mental wellness (emotional awareness, growth mindset and physical literacy) through mindfulness practices that can be adapted in engaging and meaningful ways for children in their early years.

Part of our NEW STEAM Series!
Attitudes to science and math are shaped in the early years and carry though to the teenage years (Archer et al. 2019) and the attitudes of adults can directly influence children’s attitudes towards STEAM experiences. Educators are often uncomfortable and lack confidence in providing STEAM experiences, which can result in young children not being afforded opportunities to develop a love of STEAM areas.

Vicarious Trauma – Strategies for Resilience

Helpers regularly encounter stories and symptoms of trauma in their roles. There is growing evidence that the impact of directly supporting others through experiences of trauma goes beyond burnout or fatigue. The toll of witnessing intense human experiences and emotions can contribute to a negative transformation of a helper’s own sense of safety, and of being competent and purposeful. This workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to examine their own experiences and become aware of the signs of both vicarious trauma and vicarious growth. Participants will have the opportunity to develop a personalized plan to repair negative effects as well as accelerate their resilience.

Strengthening Your Leadership Skills by Building Balanced Empathy

A NEW session in our Leadership Series

As much as we like to think we are independent, the reality is that we are all inter-connected. This inter-dependence can make many of us feel emotionally overwhelmed, leading to an emotional disconnect towards others. But this inter-dependence also creates an opportunity to develop and embrace the quality of empathy, not only towards others but also ourselves. In this workshop we will examine what may cause us to feel emotionally overwhelmed and disconnected, often creating stress, and will explore vulnerability, emotional resilience and empathy. Through various activities we will learn how to empathize from the heart and from the head. This ability will allow you to: develop and nurture a calmer and more focused mind; identify what pushes us out of balance, allowing the space for wiser choices; develop better self-understanding and therefore real empathy towards others and yourself; develop stronger emotional resilience; foster closer and more nurturing relationship with family, friends and co-workers; and develop great compassion for ourselves and others.

New Date - How to Get Second Language Learners Talking - Back by Popular Demand

Join Katherine Grainger, Speech Language Pathologist, French Emergent Literacy Consultant with Niagara Children’s Centre for this session. Oral language skills are one of the building blocks of emergent literacy. A preschooler’s ability to talk about something that has happened, describe what they see and maintain a conversation is a big part of what helps them be able to read and write in the future. But what happens when the child is being exposed to English or French for the first time in the daycare setting? How can we help these children with these skills when we may not even speak their home language? This workshop will quickly take you through what to expect of second language learners and then will be a hands-on look at how we can use current provocations and incorporate new ones to encourage these learners to increase their vocabularies and develop their oral language skills. Led by a Speech-Language Pathologist and Francophone Emergent Literacy Consultant, content will be aimed at those working in either an English or French child care setting.

When we set goals that are harmonious with who we are and what we truly value, our ability to meet these goals enhance our self-esteem and our well being in general. Mindfulness allows us to be more self-aware of what is truly important to us and understand what might be in our way of achieving these goals. In this workshop, participants will go beyond the the “ normal” goal setting process and will explore concepts of the intention pyramid, strategic intentions, and time mapping and will leave with a plan to make their goals not only achievable but inspiring.
