Positive endorsement from someone who knows
The Positive Early Childhood Education – PECE – has not only received excellent results in trial studies but has been given a hearty endorsement by industry leader Mel Comerford of Astute Early Years Specialists.
"As a sector, we tend to assume our Early Childhood Educators know things, but this program condenses a lot of really important information into one spot, in an easy to understand, linear, step-by-step way," explains Mel, who's held executive roles with Goodstart and the C&K Association, and has a degree in Early Childhood Education and decades of experience as an educator.
Go-to strategies don't always work
"Unless we're specifically taught, we tend to have one or two strategies, such as distraction or diversion, that we can use to support children's behaviour," she explains.
She says that while Early Childhood Educators are well aware of what NOT to do in tricky situations, it can be stressful not knowing what to do instead, especially if the default strategy isn't working.
