EYFS - Promoting Positive Behaviour in the Early Years

Creating an environment which supports young children to manage their feelings and behaviour.


This session allows practitioners to reflect on the typical behaviours seen in children 2-5 years old, and what strategies we can use to promote positive behaviours.


Wednesday 14th March 2018 - 6.30pm - 8.30pm reg. 6.15pm - Keynsham Civic Centre, Keynsham Community Space

This course will support practitioners to reflect on the causes of young children’s different behaviours and the types of strategies that could be used for encouraging positive behaviour.

There will be an opportunity to reflect on both the physical and emotional environment you create in your setting and how this can affect behaviour.

Participants will consider what is age appropriate behaviour and adult expectations at different ages/stages of development and how to work with families and access support when extra help is needed to support a child in managing their feelings and behaviour.


As a result of attending this training practitioners will be more knowledgeable about:

  • Some of the factors that may be influencing challenging behaviour, and how to respond to this.
  • How to organise the environment – both physical and emotional to support positive behaviour.
  • How to work with families, and involved other agencies, if needed.
  • The typical patterns of behaviour for each age group.
