Code: EL 20/032 A guide to understanding behaviour management in the Early Years

This E-learning module provides a guide to social learning and behaviour management in the early years. Given the opportunity, using a strong keyperson approach and by adopting supportive strategies, all children can learn to develop the skills needed to support their self-regulation and independence. 

This module will be beneficial to early years practitioners who are new to their role who are wanting to learn more about this subject. It is also aimed at the more experienced practitioner who may want to revisit the subject or for early years leaders who want to make sure their staff are fully up to date and are working together using a consistent team approach.  This module explores the impact of current legislation and guidance that has implication on daily practice in early years settings. This legal framework is important because it provides a structure for childminders and group settings to reflect, evaluate and plan their approach to behaviour management.  Observing children is our starting point and enables practitioners to meet them where they are, understanding what we see, the causes of behaviour and how we can support children to think about their actions as they develop and progress in their learning.  The module raises an awareness of the physical and emotional environment and the impact this has on children’s behaviour. The module also provides strategies and discussion on some of the challenges experienced when working with young children and guidance on seeking further support.
