Dive into the world of feelings and emotions with Emily as you'll explore different ways in which you can help early years children dealing with their BIG FEELINGS!! Young minds have not yet had the time to develop the upper part of the brain that helps us to self-regulate our own feelings and emotions, so it's up to us to help children along the way! With the help of Emily you'll come away from this class with a deeper understanding of the types of emotions children feel and ways in which we can help support them through the difficult moments.

1. Helping Children To Understand Different Emotions


Lesson number one is all about how we can help children to understand different emotions. Emotions are complex and helping young children to understand the different emotions they may feel is a really important step in helping children to self-regulate.

It's vital we have an understanding of some of the usual triggers that can spark these big feelings.

In this final class Emily demonstrates some simple methods you can use to help build emotional intelligence within your children. These tips explore a range of different areas from building children's confidence, giving them responsibility and talking honestly with how each others actions make us feel.

Meet your teacher

Having worked in early years since the age of 16 early childhood learning means everything to me, which is why I'm so passionate about ensuring a platform dedicated to our communities learning exists. I've experienced first hand the lack of genuine and affordable learning opportunities that exist within early years and trying to provide my teams with high quality and flexible training on a non-existent budget is an impossible task. Its our mission to change this.

'It's amazing, don't overthink it!'

We're not the biggest chain in the world with just under 60 members of staff, but The Early Years Network has been amazing for getting everyone engaged and excited to learn. If I had of asked our teams to go away over the weekend and do some research on a early years topic they'd have looked at me crazy, but since providing them with The Early Years Network I don't even need to ask. The majority of our team have become so engaged with their own learning and the provision our setting is providing I wish we'd have found this platform sooner!
