Sit Still, Don't Touch, Wait...Are we setting children up for Success?

In this podcast, we will continue the last conversation by looking at 4-5 year olds. It is easy at times to see a child’s behavior outside of the context of their age and stage. When we look again at what we are hoping to teach children in a larger sense, we can begin to appreciate some of those challenging behaviors as their way at reaching important milestones.

Who’s in Control and Why Does it Matter?

Who’s in Control and Why Does it Matter?

In this podcast, Cindy Croft and Priscilla Weigel discuss the struggle that can sometimes arise between the early educator and a child in finding the balance between limit setting and power struggle. Some children can literally ‘run’ the program—how does this happen and how does the staff regain control? Priscilla shares some real life examples that can help shift the balance again.

Play: Helping Children Who Won’t Stay or Won’t Leave (Part Two)

Building on the foundation of play skills from Part One, this podcast will examine children who can’t seem to settle into play activities or, conversely, the child who doesn’t want to leave a center or a particular toy. How can the early educator intervene to ensure that a child feels safe and secure but also is building important peer relationships? Inclusion consultant Priscilla Weigel will share some strategies that can help children settle into play.
