    Description

    Practicing mindfulness is a way to keep us focused on the present moment. Over the years there have been many studies completed documenting the benefits to mindfulness & showing links to reduced stress levels, increased focus & increased feelings of joy in life. Studies of mindfulness with children have shown these benefits as well as decreases in negative behaviors, increases in social skills & executive functioning & an increase in overall wellbeing. There has been an increase in “mindful schools” & sharing mindfulness practices with children in various parts of the world.   “The premise of mindful education is that all human beings are born with the seeds of the most beneficial universal qualities, such as compassion, creativity, integrity, & wisdom. From this perspective the ideal education is to teach in such a way that fosters these beautiful latent qualities.

    Daniel Rechtschaffen – Author of The Way of Mindful Education & founder of the Mindful Education Institute

    With mental illness on the rise & the Mental Health Commission of Canada stating an estimated 1.2 million children in Canada having some type of mental illness, it is imperative children be introduced to skills for healthy minds, body & spirits at a young age. These tools can be introduced to children during the early years & they can build on them as they grow allowing them to have a tool kit by their side when things get rough.

    In Nova Scotia, there is a curriculum framework that early childhood educators are expected to follow. How does mindfulness fit within this framework? How can educators introduce mindfulness techniques to children while meeting the goals & learning objectives outlined in the Early Learning Framework?

    This workshop is designed to share mindfulness practices appropriate for children ages 2-6 with early childhood educators while connecting these exercises & practices to key learning goals such as wellbeing, discovery & invention, language & communication & personal & social responsibility within early childhood education curriculum. We will also review how mindfulness practices fit in with holistic teaching & principles of play based learning, inclusivity, equality & reflection all important factors to consider when implementing the early learning framework.

    Module 7: Pedagogical Documentation; the What, Why, and How

    Documentation makes children’s learning, ideas, thinking and strategies visible, and serves to communicate to others – parents, colleagues, the community – not only what is happening in our setting, but how, and why the documented play or event is important. It is a crucial part of reflective practice and ongoing professional learning for educators, and also a way to revisit past events with children.

    In this module, through examples, discussion, and hands-on work, participants will:

    • Be introduced to the many forms of documentation, and which type to use in which situation

    • Understand the difference between display, documentation, and pedagogical documentation

    • Discover tools that will assist in developing documentation as a regular part of their day

    • Understand the multiple ways in which documentation can be used: Communication, Reflection, Planning-next-steps, Revisiting with Children

    Module 8: Relationships with Families and Community

    Children come to us from diverse families and communities, and we want them to feel welcomed, comfortable, and understood. How can we welcome and collaborate with all families so that everyone is included in our settings? What does it mean to develop authentic relationships? Do parents have a place in decision-making within our settings? How do we build relationships and collaborations with our cities and towns and how does this benefit all of us?

    In this module, we will hear from educators who have developed, through varied approaches, strong and respectful relationships with families and communities.

    Participants will:

    • Examine the idea of ‘relationship building’ and what this looks like in practice

    • Share ‘what has worked’ in terms of authentic collaborations

    • Understand the journey of building relationships over time, and the benefits of taking the time to do this: The development of trust, understanding of each others’ viewpoints, collaboration in terms of programme development.

    • Consider the ‘Image of the Parent’ and its impact.

    This module is being hosted by NSCC Kingstec Campus/ Early Childhood Development Support Centre
