Learning Library: Understanding Children's Behaviour

We are on a mission at ECE Learning Unlimited to help early childhood educators and leaders be the best. We have lifted the load for busy early childhood educators, by doing the research for you and curating a collection of resources on a range of common ECE topics into one place - The ECELU Learning Library.

Children deserve nothing less!

Understanding children's behaviour

One of the biggest challenges for many early years educators is knowing how to respond to children's behaviours.
As much as we love young children, sometimes their behaviour can concern us. Knowing how to recognise and respond to children's cues is a vital part of being a responsive educator. 
Having strategies that empower both the child and the educator is key to supporting children in evolving
into socially competent humans.
