The Impact Of Neuroscience Research On Early Childhood Teachers
Nov 2020
Duration: Approx. 53 min
  • Today I had the immense pleasure of speaking with Nathan Wallis - neuroscience educator. Nathan’s work shares how the brain works, and how neuroscience can better inform our day to day interactions with children and young people. If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to hear Nathan speak, then you must listen to this podcast!In this interview with Nathan, we talk about the importance of the first 1000 days in a child’s life and the importance of supporting this in early childhood education. I also asked him:
  • What is a dyadic relationship? And what does this mean for infants who are spending long hours in childcare? 
  • What is the impact of stress on infant brains, and how can early childhood teachers minimise this?
  • How can early childhood teachers best support the development of resilience and emotional intelligence?
  • How can early childhood teachers support children who have experienced trauma?

We also talked about responsive, respectful care, and the importance of consistent, dyadic primary care relationships in group care.
