Guidance Strategies for Preschools
This workshop focuses on strategies and approaches that highlight positive prevention and intervention strategies when guiding children's behaviour. We will reflect on the educators’ role in assisting children with their emotional, social and cognitive growth and development as well as looking at how the physical environment in early years impacts children’s behaviour.
The Reasons Why
Children need adults to teach, guide and support them as they grow and learn
Educators play an important role in guiding children’s behaviour in positive, supportive and age-appropriate ways
This may vary from child to child depending on the child’s age, developmental level, abilities and needs
Positive and supportive guidance helps children as they learn self-regulation and find appropriate ways to express their needs, wants, feelings and ideas
Guiding children’s behaviours is an ongoing process
It is very important for educators to be knowledgeable about how social and physical environments in early years settings can have a major effect on behaviour
Fees vary depending on number of participants, combinations of workshops, travel expenses and personal consultation services.
Early Childhood Educator, Consultant and Author
I have been an Early Childhood Educator for 20 years, having received my Diploma in Early Childhood Education from Douglas College. Since then, I have gained experience in a variety of areas within the field of Early Childhood Education: Director of a preschool, supervisor of after-school care as well as 3-5 and Infant Toddler programs and centre management. My primary focus has evolved to encompass team leadership, management training and program development. I have had articles published in provincial and national ECE journals on the topic of emergent curriculum and leadership. My goal as an Early Childhood Educator and facilitator is to support fellow educators and early years professionals in providing high-quality early learning experiences for children and families.

Management and leadership courses offered by an Early Childhood Educator truly is a gift in this line of work. Julie Hansen’s insight and understanding of childcare and early learning dynamics developed my skills and confidence as a manager. Her ideas are innovative, thoughtful and easy to implement for myself and my team. I enjoyed my one to one coaching calls, team workshops and leadership series I have taken with Julie. I recommend her to any new or veteran ECE or ECE Manager.

I would recommend Julie Hansen, Inspired ECE to anyone in the Early Childhood Education field! Julie has been a positive influence in my life with all of her workshops and resources. Julie has so much knowledge of all of the areas of Early Childhood Education and quality early learning experiences. I always walk away with something new and many ideas to take back to my own programs after attending a workshop with Julie . I've also done a consultation with Julie regarding recruiting ECE's and she had so much advice to offer. Thanks to Julie's advice, I was able to hire not one but TWO Educators for my center. If you're looking for professional development opportunities and/or professional consulting, I highly recommend connecting with Julie!
